Urban Gardening: Nibbling on Nature in the City

7:00 PM - 8:30 PM Wednesday, July 12, 2017

Main Library
449 Broadway
Lecture Hall

Join Russ Cohen as he discusses the comestible virtues of at least three dozen wild plants commonly found in urban habitats such as vacant lots, bike path edges, ball fields, weedy areas around community garden plots, and your yard. Keys to the identification of each species will be provided, along with information on which parts of the plant are edible, seasons of availability, preparation methods, and guidelines for safe and environmentally responsible foraging.
