Join Bruce Ketcham and Scott Lehmer for a wild edible walk around the main campus and shaded hedgerow of Smokey House Center. Wild edible plants and beginner level plant identification will be discussed through basic botany, as well as how, where, and when to look for specific seasonal edible plants for culinary and medicinal uses.
Bruce Ketcham is a trained herbalist. Scott is a local Danby resident who has spent hours in the forest at Smokey House Center. Together, they are both self-proclaimed plant geeks!
This workshop will take place outdoors and involves movement. The full walk is just shy of 1 mile with minimal elevation gain.
Meet in the Smokey House Center parking lot at 426 Danby Mountain Road in Danby. Due to the fact that this event is a walk, please try to arrive on time otherwise the group might not be within visible sight. Comfortable walking shoes and water suggested.
