Led by wild food enthusiast Pam Kristan, we will discover edible plants in Franklin Park — acorns, watercress, sarsaparilla, dandelion, chicory, grapes and more! Pam will show you how to recognize these plants and explain how they can be processed and eaten, including how acorns are made into flour and chicory is made into coffee. It’s going to be tons of fun and educational, giving us some insights into more edible possibilities for our growing food forest. Hope to see you there!
For the workday Pam will bring acorns, a couple of hammers and a sheet so that folks who don't want to dig can smash. Bring more hammers (we’re sure you have ‘em!)
Meet in Franklin Park at Valley Gates Parking Lot. Valley Gates Parking Lot is next to a fork – Pierpont Road – leading to the rear or Giraffe Entrance to the Zoo, the Playstead ballfields, cross country meets, and Elma Lewis Playhouse in the Park. The lot is directly across from the path that leads to Schoolmaster Hill.
