What You'll Get


The Deal

What You’ll Do

Wild edible plants are all around, growing right at your feet — in our city parks, as the “weeds” in community gardens and backyards, even in abandoned parking lots. You just need to know where to look. Leda will show you how to safely spot wild edibles such as black raspberries, sassafras, wild “cardoons”, daylily blossoms and many more natural delights. Discover the tastes and aromas of these wild, seasonal ingredients. Learn how to sustainably harvest and then deliciously prepare them.

  • Foraging Tour
    Leda shows you how to find food that’s safe to eat growing all around

  • Lesson on Preparing Foraged Foods
    Leda explains the flavors and aromas of wild ingredients and how to serve them
