Come learn about and gather wild, edible plants growing in our own backyard, Prospect Park, with extreme Locavore, Leda Meredith. Rain or shine, we'll go foraging with Leda and then make our way to SFNYC Snail of Approval winning restaurant, Beer Table, to taste some of what Leda has foraged and enjoy special beers selected for the occasion by Beer Table owner, Justin Philips. Autographed copies of Leda's book, "The Locavore's Handbook," will be available. Beverages at Beer Table are not included in the ticket price.
Proceeds from this event will benefit the activities of Slow Food NYC, including the Urban Harvest programs of good food education for NYC kids.
The Slow Food NYC Urban Harvest program supports good food education for New York City kids, including edible gardens, food and nutrition education, and student farm stands in 11 schools, and two urban gardens, where kids learn to plant, tend, harvest, and enjoy real food they work to grow.
