Spring Wild Edibles
Things are finally greening up around here!
Winter foods are weighing heavy on our stomachs, and it’s time for something fresh…and green. Many of the first plants to emerge from river banks, forests, and fields are edible, and they’re available before anything is ready from the garden. In addition, early shoots are often the most delectible part of plant to eat! If you need any more convincing, research the nutrition content of these greens – they’re all packed with vitamins and minerals.
Spend some time with our Certified Herbalist, Heather Houskeeper, for an introduction to all things foraging, herbs, and mushrooms!
