Join author Leda Meredith and Slow Food NYC at The Farm on Adderley in Brooklyn for a discussion and signing of Northeast Foraging: 120 Wild and Flavorful Edibles from Beach Plums to Wineberries. Learn about wild edibles while sipping on foraged cocktails prepared by The Farm on Adderley. 

The Northeast offers a veritable feast for foragers. The woods, meadows, seashore, and even city neighborhoods are home to an abundance of delicious wild edible plants. A passionate wild foods expert, Meredith emphasizes local varieties and traditions, showing you what to look for, when and where to look, and how to gather in a responsible way.
