Even though there are thousands of edible species out there, we modern-day humans focus on less than 100 cultivated plant species for the majority of our diets! What flavors, delicacies, and nutrient-dense deliciousness do we miss? A lot. Come join me for a dive into the incredible wild edibles all around us and some of the history on why we eat what we eat and some enticing reasons (and recipes) on why we should. We'll learn about species like black walnut, acorns, beechnuts, spicebush, hawthorn, hickory, turkey tail mushrooms or whatever we find on the trail!
