Late Spring Herbs & Wild Foods
Time & Location
About the Event
As their blooms fade and fall, it is said that spring ephemerals like trillium and bloodroot impart nutrients and microorganisms into the soil and water, setting the pace for a vibrant, growing season. This time of year, the fragrance of wild rose and honeysuckle is intoxicating, and it will take your breath away if you get a chance to see the elusive (and protected) pink lady slipper and flame azalea in bloom.
Spring gives us clues for what we can find later in the summer and fall. Blackberry flowers begin to turn into delicious blackberries in the early summer, and last year’s chicken-of-the-woods mushrooms leave traces so that you can return to find a fresh fruiting body later in the fall. See all that spring has to offer us in our second wild foods and herbs walk of the season.
