About the Program
Wild edibles exist almost everywhere and are in abundance if you know how to and feel like foraging for them. Edible weeds, flowers and wild herbs were foraged and used as food as well as medicines.

In this field trip, students will discover the abundance of edible plants that you can use for food, tea, and ointment in the natural environment near your school. We will identify the plants and discuss their food or medicinal properties. At the end we will have a fun tea party.

About the Community Educator
