Foraging for Wild Greens
with “Wildman” Steve Brill

Wildman” Steve Brill is America’s go-to guy for foraging wild edibles. A self taught naturalist, environmental educator and author, he has led thousands of foraging tours and is best

 known for tours in Central Park, New York City.
This is a unique opportunity to join the “wildman” for a two hour foraging tour of the Watchung Reservation. Participants will learn to identify, harvest ecologically and use many of the common, tasty, healthful overlooked renewable mid-spring shoots, greens and herbs, otherwise considered “weeds.” Taste a menu of such unwanted plants as lamb’s quarters, curly dock, common milkweed, pokeweed, sassafras, burdock and many more.
