In modern times, we have all but forgotten that in our everyday landscapes, we are surrounded by healthy, biodiverse foods in the forms of wild, seasonally edible plants, seeds, mushrooms, and animals.
Join scholar and outdoor enthusiast, Joel Pontius for a short talk about safety guidelines for foraging in the woods and the reasons behind it and then for a walk through the woods finding and sampling the good things nature provides.
The walk will take place on the Southern Indiana Purdue Agricultural Center forestry property which contains medium to rough pathways. Directions will be provided to all registered participants.
Registration is required by June 15th.
Children 10 – 16 are welcome but must be accompanied by a parent.
This event is brought to you by the Indiana Humanities’ Unearthed Speakers Bureau and Purdue University for allowing us to use their property.
