Edible Native Plants (May 31, 1-3pm)
Anna Wik
Landscape Architect, Pennsylvania Horticultural Society

Many of us love to munch on blackberries and raspberries, but did you know you can also make a caffeinated beverage out of Yaupon holly, jam out of chokeberry and snack on the young shoots of Solomon's seal? Many of our most treasured native plants were used by Native Americans and early settlers as nourishing food, and can still provide for us today. We will start in the classroom with a short presentation on selected plants after which we will go on an informal hour-long walk to see these and other plants in the field. We will identify and discuss historical and current uses for several native herbs, shrubs, and trees. Wear good walking shoes.
