Did you know that many of the native species we see around us (and label as weeds) once were a prize source of both food and medicine? On Saturday August 24, citizen forester and urban forager, Laura Casaletto, will share how to identify the edible plants growing in your Grand Rapids neighborhoods. She has been using foraging as a means to supplement her family’s food budget for many years.

Stop by to sample Sumac-ade drinks (a delicious pink lemonade substitute) and two types of finger foods made primarily from wild greens including lambs quarters and garden hostas.
