Wild Edibles Program at Sweet Arrow Lake Park

Many people don’t realize that they are surrounded by hundreds of wild edible plants.

 From vacant fields to backyards and woodlands, nature provides an abundance of plants that are food for humans. 

Educator, naturalist, nutritionist, and wild plant expert Debbie Naha will discuss the wild edible plants of our area, plant identification, safety, look-alike plants, sustainable harvesting, nutrition, and more on Wednesday, August 17, 2016 at 6:00 p.m. at the Sweet Arrow Lake County Park clubhouse. 

The talk will be followed by an outdoor foraging walk. Attendees may even take home a few “wild” recipes. 

With a degree in biology, as well as a Master's Degree in Nutrition from New York University, Debbie presents a unique approach to appreciating wild edible plants. She is also a certified science teacher, a certified Rutgers Master Gardener, and a Pennsylvania Master Naturalist. 

This program is free and open to the public and is made possible with the help of a grant from the Schuylkill Area Community Foundation. For directions or questions call 570-345-8952 and leave a message. Your call will be returned.
