Wild edibles exist almost everywhere and are in abundance if you forage for them. Edible wild food has naturally grown in almost every corner of our planet for tens of thousands of years. Edible weeds, flowers and wild herbs were foraged and used as food (as well as medications); and they provided all the vitamins, minerals and other nutrients required for the human body to maintain good health. Foraging for food used to be the way to survive.
Chances are edible weeds are in your backyard, on pathways you walk every day, or in fields you see every day. Many of these plants can be foraged and added to your daily diet to increase your nutritional intake.
Join us to discover:
- Find out how many vitamins, minerals and nutrients are in wild plants.
- Discover the health benefits from “weeds”.
- Tips on harvesting and storing.
Karen will be speaking Monday evening, June 24 @ 7:30 p.m. at the Fenelon Falls Horticulture Society, Salvation Army Citadel, Bond St. W. Guests are welcome.
