Location: Arlington, MA
Description: We usually encounter 25-40 different species of edible wild plants (and, in season, pending favorable weather conditions, mushrooms). Keys to the identification of each species are provided, as well as information about its edible portion(s), season(s)of availability, flavor and nutritive value, and some tips on preparation if necessary. Guidelines for safe and environmentally responsible foraging are also provided. In addition, there is a constantly changing variety of edible wild plants throughout the year, even at the same location, so that different plants are typically encountered on each visit.

Lecture introduction to urban foraging 4.5 out of 5
by Lauren @ Modern Self-Reliance
Review: Russ presented a lecture on foraging laid out by seasons in New England. He brought along foraged snacks for students to try the types of plants he was talking about. It was a great introduction to foraging, he did the best he could given it was hosted in a library and not in the field.
