Thanks to everyone who joined our August Wild History Foraging Tour + Light Picnic this past Saturday! We had a great tour learning about three different approaches to urban foraging and then chowing down on delicious brunch fare made with all of the plants we had talked about that day. See our full gallery here.
We also had a couple of special visitors with us this week – reporters from the Raleigh News and Observer! You can find a great piece on our tour and on what we do here at Piedmont Picnic Project on the front page of the local section in this past Sunday’s paper or online here.
Our tour started and ended at Raleigh City Farm – which gives us a great example of how to incorporate traditionally wild edible plants into our decorative or edible landscape – providing beauty to our gardens, shelter and food to wildlife and pollinators, and interesting new foods to us!
We’ll be having several more events and classes at Raleigh City Farm this fall – including our Family Reunion One-Year Anniversary Party and our Fall Veggies: It ain’t over till it’s over class series – so stay tuned to our Events page to learn more!
