Discover the delicious side of nature. Texas provides an abundance of wild edible leaves, seeds, flowers, roots, and shoots – if you know where to look. Learn where to find, how to identify, and how to properly prepare a seasonal selection of local edible plant species. As our landscape changes throughout the year, the selection of plants will change, so you can repeat the class each season to experience new content.

This class involves a long outdoor walk. Wear walking shoes and weather-appropriate clothing. Pen/pencil and a camera are recommended.

Instructor bio: Dr. Mark Vorderbruggen is a research chemist and one of the Houston area’s most intrepid explorers. For more information, visit his blog “Foraging Texas.”
