Wild Edible Picnic & Plant Walk


Wild Edible Picnic & Plant Walk


Noon to 1:30pm, Saturday October 26th

Horner Park, 2741 W Montrose Ave Chicago, IL 60618

Come learn about the wild edible foods growing all around you and how to identify, forage, and eat wild plants in a responsible and ethical way.

Class with begin with a picnic where you can try some pre-made wild food and tea while learning how to identify wild foods and how to forage in a safe and responsible way. Then we will go on a plant walk around the park and down towards the Chicago River 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.
