Edible Plant Walk with Sonoran Herbalist and Forager John Slattery
PLANT WALK IS $10 IN ADVANCE, OR $15 IN PERSON.
The Texas Hill Country possesses a wide array of edible plants. Several foods such as mesquite, pecan, walnut, and hackberry can be found in such abundance, and their nutrition so great, that they were greatly favored by skilled foragers of the past. Fortunately for us, these foods (and many more) come into ripening during the late summer and into the early autumn.
Join foraging author John Slattery (Southwest Foraging, Timber Press) for a walk and talk on the edible wild plants found at Jackson Ranch in central San Antonio.
A book signing will immediately follow the walk.
All participants should bring ample water to drink, and comfortable footwear for our short walk. You are welcome to bring a notebook and camera if you like.
