Join Elizabeth Kligge a Wild Edibles walk. Discover the bounty that nature provides all around us each and every day in the form of roots, shoots, stems, leaves, fruits, seeds, and bark. On this guided plant walk, you will learn to identify and harvest wild edible, medicinal, and utilitarian plants. We will also discuss safety and the caretaker’s method of gathering. Whether your goal is to supplement and vary your diet, save money on groceries, or have a backup plan in the event of a survival situation, learning wild plants will change the way you perceive the world.
Elizabeth Kligge grew up gardening and exploring the local wild places near Reading, Pennsylvania. She learned her first wild plants from her parents, near the creek that runs through their land and eventually went on to study primitive survival and teach her own workshops across the United States. She is an avid naturalist with a particular interest in tracking, hunter-gatherer, and homesteading skills. She is also a certified permaculture designer.
We will meet at the Willoughby House at the end of Pine Avenue, off Good Intent Road in Blackwood Terrace, or you can put «340 Pine Avenue, Deptford» into your favorite mapping service.
