Matt Cohen, a professional forager and landscaper based in Silver Spring, will present
a slide show of various wild edible foods that can be found in Takoma Park throughout the
year including what can be found even in the cold of February. He will cover a buffet from
humble weeds to fruiting trees and top it off with a few edible mushrooms.
Matt has studied wild edibles, plant and mushroom identification, and many other topics
of the natural world for the last 20 years and has been leading regular walks for adults
and children through his business Matt's Habitats for the last 6 years. As a landscaper he
works with clients to make their yards more environmentally sound through growing edibles,
planting natives, using locally sourced materials, capturing stormwater, and other
strategies. Please see his website

This talk is open and free to all. No need to RSVP.
Please wear a recycled nametag and bring a snack to share.
