Walk With Us Sunday

We hope you'll join us this Sunday, May 17, at 11 am on the South Side River Trail for a Wild Edible Plant Walk!

This weekend, we are looking forward to seeing Black Locust Flowers. This amazing edible delight is only available a few weeks every year. The flower is the only edible part of this tree, and they are delicious:



Please give us a call: (412) 381-0116 for more information, or to register for the walk.

The cost is $5. Kids are welcome with adults, and children under 10 are free.

If you can't make the walk, make sure to check out our Wild Edibles Workshop on May 30 from 10 am - 1 pm. This promises to be a great workshop! We'll go on a walk, harvest edible plants, make garlic mustard vinegar (we'll each make our own so you can take yours home). I will also demonstrate some recipes. We'll sample delicious food made with wild edibles including:

  • Juice
  • Smoothies
  • Cookies
  • Green Chips
  • Vinegars
  • Dandelion Wine
  • Pesto

Each participant will also receive a packet of all the recipes sampled and demonstrated, and a picture guide of wild edibles used.

The cost of this workshop is $35, please register early, space is limited! This workshop will be held in Squirrel Hill (location will be sent once you register). Call (412) 381-0116.

We hope to see you soon!
