A wild edible plant walk in the open space at Hilltop Farm can be a fun and educational experience for nature enthusiasts and food lovers. The region is home to a variety of edible plants that have been used for centuries by Native Americans and early settlers for their nutritional and medicinal properties.
During the walk participants can learn about the different types of plants that can be safely foraged and how to identify them. It is important to note that foraging for wild plants should only be done with the guidance of an experienced and knowledgeable guide, as some plants can be poisonous if not properly identified. Mark Apgar, who will be leading our walk, has been hiking local trails and eating wild plants for many years. He is also experienced in identifying animal tracks. The walk is appropriate for ages 8 and older. Kids must be accompanied by an adult.
