Eat Wild: Fresh, Diverse, and Sustainable Food

  • Como Park Picnic Area 1224-1256 Midway Pkwy St Paul, MN, 55103 United States (map)

Did you know that there exist approximately 75,000 edible plant species in the world? But that only 30 species produce 95% of the food we eat? This means that more than 99% of edible plant species are drastically underutilized. And a surprising number of these species live right in your own backyard— even in urban environments! Join Maria Wesserle of Four Season Foraging to learn some foraging basics and discover common wild edible plants.

Meet at the Como Park in St. Paul — picnic area northwest of Estabrook Drive & Midway Parkway (near the zoo).

Free and open to the public.

This presentation is being held as part of the Minnesota Rovers weekly meeting. Anyone, members and non-members alike, are welcome to drop by a meeting any Tuesday at 7:00 p.m. It’s a great way to find out more about the club and meet other members! For more information, visit the MN Rovers website.
