The Stratford Library will host a special workshop “Edible Wild Plans and Fungi of Spring”,
an informative and entertaining seasonal presentation on Thursday, April 25 at 6:30 pm. The
program is free and open to the public.
As the warmer temperatures and longer days of spring unfold, many tender, young edible
shoots, plants, flowers, and even a few fungi awaken a forager’s senses and delight. At the
Library program, attendees will learn how to identify, sustainably harvest, and prepare the wild
foods of spring, from invasive bamboo shoots to the lemony tang of fresh wood sorrel, including
some of the early edible fungi of the season.
Guest speakers for the program are “The 3 Foragers”, a family from southeastern
Connecticut who have been identifying, photographing, and cooking with the edible plants and
fungi of New England for more than 18 years. Their educational slideshow will focus on family-
friendly, environmentally sustainable harvest of both native and invasive species of plants, and
ways to incorporate these foods into a diet with original recipes.
“Edible Wild Plans and Fungi of Spring” will be held in the Stratford Library Lovell Room
on April 25 from 6:30-8 pm. All are invited to attend but reservations at:
