The Wild Edible Adirondack Salad workshop will be held at the Birch Boys storefront at 123 Park Street in Tupper Lake, NY.
Reservations are appreciated in order to plan the "menu" and coordinate carpooling for those interested.
The wild edible Chaga mushroom is one of many wild edibles that will be featured at the event. Chaga can be made into a delicious tea in the traditional way of the Adirondacks and will be available, as well as many other plants one can forage for.
Presenter Garrett Kopp is the founder and owner of Birch Boys Chaga LLC in Tupper Lake. He is a junior at Clarkson University studying Innovation and Entrepreneurship. By starting a sustainable chaga industry in his home town, his dream is to leave a positive footprint on the health food industry.
