Wild History Walk – Blooms & Berries | Surprise Location TBA, Raleigh, NC | May 22, 2-4 PM
Piedmont Picnic Project will host a Wild History Foraging Walk + Wild Food Tasting on Sunday, May 22, 2-4 PM. We’ll forage edible wild plants together, learn more about the local history, and then taste dishes made from the same plants!
Our walk will take place at a surprise location within a 20-minute drive of downtown Raleigh. The location will be a lovely natural setting with abundant wild edibles and a unique connection to Raleigh’s history.
We will review foraging guidelines and safety as well as instruction on plant uses and identification. Along the way, we’ll share history about the local area and this month’s theme: Berries & Blooms.
For the light picnic you can expect wild teas, local bread, local cheese, homemade wild jams and jellies, wild greens, and a wild treat for dessert!
