In fact it is: I did my first wild edibles talk already for the Schenley Farms Garden Club, and Frick's Earth Day Celebration is right around the corner (2 free walks scheduled this year! See below.)
I've already seen onion grass, garlic mustard, wintercress, chickweed, mullein and dandelion out there! It's coming!! Dave and Ella finally spotted a couple robins the other day.
Here is the start of this year's schedule.
Wild Edible Walks in Pittsburgh, PA!

Wild Edible Walks in The 'Burgh!
Join herbalists Melissa and David Sokulski, of The Birch Center for Health, for a wild edible walk.

Invite Melissa Sokulski to Lead a Walk for Your Group or You and Your Friends!
Do you wonder what is growing in your own backyard? How about those weeds you pull from your garden...maybe they're edible!
Melissa can lead you and your friends on a tour of your area, yard, or garden. She'll help you identify edible plants, show you how to harvest them and suggest some great uses and recipes!
Cost: $150 for 1 1/2 hour walk and talk, plus travel fee. ($50 per additional half hour)
Thanks so much,
