July 20th from 10:00 am – 2:00 pm
Herbalist and author Dina Falconi will present a special workshop,
Foraging & Feasting the Bounty of Mid Summer in the Catskills,
hosted by Amy Gillingham at Wild Roots Farm in Livingston Manor, NY.
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.
