Participants will explore the wild edibles of the Catskills and learn to identify, harvest, & prepare them. The harvest will be transformed into a delectable feast in the gorgeous setting of Wild Roots Farm. The menu includes (although may vary): herbal beverages, wild salad (purslane, lamb’s quarter, violet, wood sorrel, rose petals), amaranth & dock soup, wild green pesto (wild bergamot and chickweed), flower butter, and delicious bread freshly baked in the wood-fired outdoor oven.
