wild greens

Forage for Local Greens – Saturday Afternoon May 16th

by Slow Food Cape Cod on April 30, 2009

I am really excited to offer an opportunity for us to forage for wild greens at Cedar Spring Herb Farm, on Saturday, May 16th from 2:00 to 3:30.  (price is $18.00 per person). We will be under the guidance of Donna Eaton, an herbalist, organic farmer, and teacher; she has a vast knowledge of culinary and medicinal herbs, Cape Cod farming, and the practices of Native American traditions.  It is a great opportunity for us to get to know Donna, see the 7 acre farm in Harwich, and learn about local greens that grow in the wild. After we complete our “weed walk” we will get together and share our harvest (as in make a salad), we will also include a tasting of artisan cheeses (Shy Brothers) and freshly baked bread. For a drink, we plan to sip some freshly brewed herbal iced teas. I am sure we will have some lively discussions.

P.S. – Cedar Spring Herb Farm is the location for the Outstanding In The Field Dinner this summer in August.
If you would like to join, email me to reserve your spot. I had an opportunity to meet Donna last year at CLASH, and have been looking forward to getting our Slow Food group together and spending this time on the farm.
