Woodland foraging for edible plants

Free lunch in the woods, really? Check out the edible wild plants around you. For expert help, come to Woodland Foraging for Edible Plants on March 22 in Kingston with lifelong forager, Barbara Roch. Hosted by the Ontario Woodlot Association, Limestone Chapter, it includes their annual general meeting.

Barbara Roch has been dining in the woods all her life, so she knows the whole story on edible wild plants. Barbara will present a powerpoint show on edible plants and mushrooms, including locations, safety and sustainability. She supplies area chefs, retailers and individuals with native plants and mushrooms, and enjoys creating new recipes. Edible plants are free, hardy, nutritious, and fun to find.

Cataraqui Conservation Outdoor Centre at 1641 Perth Road. Doors open at 6:30 and the show begins at 7 pm. For more information, contact or 613-373-9334. Also visit
