Marvelous Edible Plants and Mushrooms of Autumn
Saturday, August 26
10 AM at the Sugar House
utumn is a time of bounty and harvest for woodland creatures and foragers alike: nuts are falling to the forest floor, fruits are ripening and scenting the crisp fall air, roots and tubers are thickening up in anticipation of sustaining the plants through the tough winter, and edible fungi can be found in astounding amounts. Learn how to identify, sustainably harvest, and prepare the wild foods of autumn, from acorns through minty wintergreen leaves, including golden honey mushrooms and maitake, the "dancing mush-room". Join The 3 Foragers as they teach the edible plants and fungi of autumn with their original photos and recipe ideas in an educational slideshow, and finish with a walk outside to put some of those newly learned skills to the test.
The 3 Foragers are a family form southeastern Connecticut who have been foraging wild foods and fungi, and blogging about their adventures for over ten years. Their recent book, Adventures in Edible Plants Foraging: finding, Identifying, Harvesting, and Preparing Native and Invasive Wild Plants, is available from Amazon or directly from the authors at events. The 3 Foragers were included in the 2016 March/April issue of Yankee Magazine discussing family-friendly and sustainable foraging.
