The Takoma Horticultural Club Presents
"Foraging Foods in Takoma Park"

Wednesday, February 18, 7:30-9:00pm
At Historic Takoma
47328 Carroll Avenue, Takoma Park, MD

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 www.mattshabitats.com for more info.

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