About This Event

Central Maine is home to over 80 species of edible wild plants, many of which are more nutritious and/or flavorful than their cultivated counterparts. Join Russ Cohen, wild edibles enthusiast and author of Wild Plants I Have Known…and Eaten, on a three-hour ramble through the Viles Arboretum, to learn about over two dozen species of edible wild plants.

Russ has documented over 50 wild and tasty species in the Arboretum, native species like Wild Strawberry, Nannyberry and Hazelnut; non-native weeds, like Salsify, Chicory, Burdock; and invasive species, like Autumn Olive. Keys to the identification of each species will be provided, along with info on edible portion(s), season(s) of availability and preparation methods, as well as guidelines for safe and environmentally-responsible foraging.

Members of Viles Arboretum & Wild Seed project receive a discount on tickets.
