Wild Leek and Spring Edibles Woods Romp
Enjoy a Spring woods romp with workshop presenter Zach Gagliardi of North Country Foragers.
Learn about wild foods with the one and only North Country Forager! We'll explore the sylvan glade together where ramps (wild leeks) grow in abundance along with trout lily, spring beauties, dutchman's breeches, various docks, black cohosh, lambs quarter, mallow, marsh marigold, plantain, and many others we'll explore for - and if we're lucky, perhaps even some morel mushrooms!
Identification, harvesting and eating will all be topics of note. We'll share a meal, forager-style! Come join the fun, and never look at the natural world quite the same!
Zach is 21 years old and has lived in the North Country for 13 years now. He's been interested in the natural world for as long as he can remember, and has done extensive personal research on the subject for many years of his life. Zach says, "So it stands to reason that a large part of that research was, quite frankly, on 'what grows here that I can eat?' Lo and Behold, I've come to be able to identify quite a few different edible plants and mushrooms of upstate New York just in the past few years, and it's become a passion of mine ever since."
He created a Facebook page called North Country Foragers , so that he could share his knowledge and experiences with others who share his interest. The group now has over a hundred members. "Every time I spot a puffball, pick a blackberry, or crack open a butternut; I think about how blessed I am to forage, and all the while just enjoy living, in this wonderful place with its wonderful people that we call the North Country..."
