Urban Foraging 101

There are a surprising number of wild plants in Florida that bear tasty and nutritious fruits, roots, flowers, leaves and stems that I've been enjoying in Tampa since the 1970s. This class will be held in the two parks just north of MacDill AFB where south Himes Avenue dead ends. Bring a note pad, pen and camera if you wish to learn how to spot, identify and eat these very diverse wild food crops. The cost is $20 per person though barter for 1 gallon of raw whole milk or some 420 works too. One park is very natural and overgrown so wear long jeans and perhaps tall boots when we walk through the hip high meadow. We will also discuss plants NOT growing there so you can look them up on line then find them on your own, especially if you live near marshy areas. The class date is: November 19 from 11 AM until 1 PM. See you at the parks' parking lot that day! John Starnes 813 839 0881
