35.00

September 23rd, from 5-7pm.

Loyola Park

1230 W Greenleaf Ave, Chicago, IL 60626


Come learn about the wild edible foods growing all around you and how to identify, forage, and eat wild plants in a responsible way. Class with begin with a picnic in Loyola Park at the end of Lunt Ave and the lakefront. Students can try some pre-made wild food and tea while learning how to identify wild foods and how to forage ethically and legally. Then we will go on a plant walk around the park to point out the wild foods in season. There will be no foraging on the walk to help prevent damage to the ecosystem the plants reside in. Careless foraging can lead to certain plants becoming endangered and if you are caught foraging in areas where it's illegal you will be fined by the police. However pictures of edible plants with note cards can be taken on the walk. The note cards will have the plant’s common name, Latin name and what parts of the plant are edible. Students can then take this information to harvest plants on their own property or in other acceptable locations.
