Fall Foraging at Wild Ridge Plants

Saturday, November 16, 2019 - 10:00am

The first frosts have hit, but there is still abundant wild food in the landscape, including nutritious greens, spicy barks and roots, and the last fruits and nuts of the season. Join botanist Jared Rosenbaum at Wild Ridge Farm as we explore edible and medicinal wild plants and weeds, harvest and preparation techniques, and plant identification and ecology. We'll work with hickory nuts, American hazelnut, acorns, groundnut, sassafras, blackhaw, sochan, Virginia waterleaf, nodding onion, and much more. Please bring a pair of work gloves, a mug or bottle, and a plate.

Wild Ridge Plants

We're a family business growing beautiful native plants in the Highlands of New Jersey. Our plants have cultural uses as edible, medicinal, and ornamental species...and ecological values as sustenance and shelter for wildlife.
