2024 Winter Lectures: Introduction to Foraging

January 20 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

Violet wood sorrel (Oxalis violacea)

Join Rachel Goclawski as she explains the basics of sustainable foraging in the wild.  Foraging is a great way to incorporate local, nutrition-packed foods into your diet. It’s a fun way to get outdoors with friends and family, and sustainable foraging has a positive impact on native ecosystems.  Get started on your wild food foraging journey by learning how to select a guidebook and how to forage through the seasons.  Learn about the identification of some common wild edibles in New England, their preparation and preservation tips.

Rachel Goclawski, forager and certified educator, State-Certified in Mushrooming, is a Programmer for the Museum of Natural History, Sudbury Valley Trustees, New England Botanic Garden, and other organizations.  She is a contributing writer for The Cook’s Cook: Now Forager magazine and has been featured in The Boston Globe, WBZ, Edible Worcester and Baystate Parent magazines, other news, and documentaries and print.  Rachel comes from a long line of foragers, including her great-grandfather, Arthur W. Fairbanks, a co-founder of the Boston Mycological Club.  Visit her Facebook, Instagram or YouTube for Forage to Table tips, recipe ideas and videos.

Registration is required for this event as seating is limited.  Please call 413-245-1353 or email to register.
