Westborough – Whether you’re interested in your health, sustainability, or simple pleasure, knowing your wild edibles is fun and useful. From the woods to the meadows to our gardens, wild edibles are all around us.

Walk with Dan Jaffe of the New England Wild Flower Society (NEWFS) at the Westboro Wildlife Management Area Sunday, May 22 from 1:30-3:30 p.m. for an introduction to the wild plants that can feed us. He will also address questions of sustainability and conservation of rare edible species.   Meet at Mass Fish & Wildlife headquarters parking lot, 1 Rabbit Hill Road (at end of North Drive off Milk St./Rte.135).  Slow 1-mile walk on hilly terrain along paths and in fields.

Rain date Saturday, June 4. For more information contact [email protected]. A trail can be found at http://www.westboroughcharm.org/guide/maps/map_FishWildlife.pdf
