What You’ll Do
Don’t be fooled by the buildings and streets. Boston and Cambridge are thriving wildernesses with ample plant life that’s good enough to eat—you just have to know where to look. During this lesson, follow urban forager David Craft on a 90-minute walk leading you toward spots where you might find up to 30 different wild edibles. Then listen to David’s tips on how to harvest and prepare those plants.
Meet the Group
Guests meet up with David, introduce themselves, and chat briefly about plants.
Learn How to Find Wild Edibles
The group walks for about 90 minutes while David reveals how to find and identify up to 30 edible plants in the urban wild.
Sit and Mingle
David supplies some pre-made foraged foods as the group sits down to reflect on the lesson.
Around seven years ago, David Craft expressed an interest in learning about wild edibles. Unsuspectedly, two different friends of his ended up buying him a foraging book, and he’s been infatuated ever since. He signed up for foraging classes and thoroughly practiced the craft, learning how to harvest and cook edible plants that grow throughout Boston and the nearby area. Since becoming an expert, David has been featured on NPR and regularly gives lectures and lessons on the subject.
