Urban Plants Walk with Rewild Portland

Tomorrow! Sunday, May 3, 10 am to noon

See the our neighborhood flora in a new way as Rewild Portland’s Sarah Hill interprets the weeds and wild plants along our bluff and around the neighborhood. In this intro level walk, participants will learn the principals of gathering wild plant foods, focusing on harvesting ethics, basic plant ID, and common edible ‘weeds’. At the end of the walk, participants will be able to sample a few dishes made with locally harvested wild foods, and have the tools and resources to begin exploring the world of foraging. Rewild Portland aims to reconnect people with the ancestral skills and knowledge we were all once rooted in, and by doing so spur regeneration for the land, community and self. Suggested donation $10.

Dress for the weather, bring gloves and a small digging tool (optional) and let us know if you have any dietary restrictions when you register if you want to try recipe samples.

Meet at 10 am at the picnic shelter at Overlook Park. We’ll end up at the Historic Oak meadow on the 3900 block of Overlook Terrace.
