Please join us for a wild edibles walk and morel mushrooms sale this Saturday, May 17, 2014 at 10:30 - 12:30 at Frick Park Environmental Center.
There are so many fantastic wild edibles out there right now - including morel mushrooms and Dryad Saddle mushrooms - let’s see if we can find some!
Of course we can’t guarantee morel findings, but we CAN tell you Frick Park is a well known morel playground! At least you’ll learn what to look for and we’ll share some great tips on how to find them. We’ll bring samples of all the different equally delicious types of morels there are to find around here including little grays, black, half-free and yellow.
We’ll also find and discuss at least 15 common wild edible plants including dandelion, burdock, dead nettles, chickweed, cleavers and many many more.
If you’d like to buy some morels from us we are selling them in 3oz bags - which as you can see below is quite a lot of morels!
3 oz of morels
The walk is $5/person, and each 3 oz bag of fresh morels is $5.
Please register and let me know how many 3 oz bags you would like (ideally.) I will try to make sure each person who wants morels gets some, so if you’d ideally like 3 bags that will only be possible if there are more morels left over after everyone who wants some gets some.
Register by sending an email to: Melissa@FoodUnderFoot.com with your name, email and phone number, how many will be on the walk with you and if you’d like morels how many bags you would ideally like.
We’ll meet at Frick Environmental Center, 2005 Beechwood Blvd (where the Earth Day walks were.) There is a parking lot there and we’ll meet at the circle garden (by the Port-A-Johns.)
