Wild Food: "Find Dining" off the Eaten Path Lecture

Event Location: 
U.S. Botanic Garden
Food in the wild.

Ready to go wild? Join the country's leading philosoforager as he uncovers the Garden of Eden all around us. Wild food is the ultimate local, natural food. Ideal for people and the planet, it is more healthful, sustainable, and flavorful than its garden variety descendants. This is one place where you get what you don't pay for. Simply go "out to eat" and take your pick! Discover how easy it is to "take in the landscape." We'll meet a dozen denizens of your yarden and learn seven reasons to make friends in low places. It's time to eat the neighbors!

Date: September 11, 2014
Time: 6:30 p.m. to 8 p.m.
Location: U.S. Botanic Garden Conservatory Classroom
FREE: Pre-registration required
