Just in case your CSA produce isn’t fresh and local enough for ya, Slow Food NYC is planning an urban foraging expedition in Central Park next Saturday, led by ethnobotanist Nat Bletter. Come taste red-fleshed apples, rosehips, sassafras, mustard greens, lamb’s quarters, epazote, mugwort, burdock, cornelian cherries, and more. Bring bags for collecting food and a fork for tasting some delicious park salad.
Foraging starts at the NW Corner of 79th St and 5th Ave at 12 noon on Saturday, October 4th (rain date Sunday Oct 5th). Check the Slow Food NYC site for more details on this and other upcoming events.
