About the event
This illustrated talk will explore PEI's habitats from sandy beaches and salt marshes to fields and forests. We'll look at some common and easy-to-find plants that are useful in the kitchen and others that have proven medicinal benefits. It's important for foragers to know - and avoid - toxic species, and the talk will include some of our most poisonous plants as well. While I'm not a mushroom expert, I will throw in a few beginner-level mushrooms that I enjoy, and that just about anyone can try. Registration will open a few weeks before the event, but you can email firstname.lastname@example.org anytime to get on the notification list for when it does.
