Naturalist John Root to Lead Edible Plant Walk

by Press Release
May 17, 2017

Naturalist John Root will lead an edible wild plants walk at 3:00 PM on Saturday, May 20 at Outpost Farm, 216 Prentice St. in Holliston.  Free, all ages welcome. Perennials for edible landscaping and attracting songbirds, hummingbirds, and butterflies will be offered for sale. This program is supported in part by a grant from the Holliston Cultural Council, a local agency which is supported by the Massachusetts Cultural Council, a state agency.

Root has a BA in Biology from Oberlin College, graduate study in Botany at UNC, and am passionate about edible landscaping (a.k.a. "permaculture").  I also offer a number of gardening and nature programs at a variety of venues all over New England (libraries, senior centers, long term care facilities, nature centers ...).  I've been foraging for edible wild plants all my life, and enjoy empowering people to have the confidence to be able to positively identify edible plants and avail themselves of their incredible nutrition (not to mention hearty tastiness)!  Feel free to call me at 413.961.9059 if you'd like more info.
