Come join us for an introduction into native edible plants, presented by David Williams. You'll learn proper harvesting techniques, some of these plants' historical significance, and identification of plants you might have in your yard right now! You'll also be able to taste test some locally sourced products including home-tapped maple syrup.
Speaker bio: David Williams has been a volunteer for Ohio conservation programs for years, including: Wild Ones, Appalachia Ohio Alliance, Friends of the Lower Olentangy Watershed, and most recently Stratford Ecological Center and the Native American Indian Center of Central Ohio.
