Event Details

WHERE THE WILD THINGS ARE

On weekends during the months of April and May, Berkshire Farm & Table will present Where the Wild Things Are – eight wild food walks in our local landscape lead by experienced and passionate instructors who will focus on responsible harvesting techniques, recipes and the history of foraging in the Berkshires. One of the motivations for undertaking such a series is to present expert voices to the public to educate on ecosystem balance and sustainability.

 

SATURDAY, APRIL 28

Join renowned forager Aimee Gelinas from Windsor, MA, on a two-hour foraging walk at Stone Hill on The Clark campus in Williamstown beginning at 11:00 AM on Saturday, April 28, 2012. The walk will take place rain or shine. Please wear appropriate clothing for hiking and weather conditions.


PARTNERS

This month-long exploration of wild spring edibles is being presented thanks to the generous support of the Williams College Sustainable Food and Agriculture Program, a major sponsor of Where the Wild Things Are. Additional partners include The Briarcliff Motel, Mezze Restaurant Group, The Red Lion Inn and Storey Publishing.

Where the Wild Things Are walks are leading up to Berkshire Grown’s Farmed + Foraged culinary event, celebrating a weekend of spring flavors with more than two dozen restaurants offering spring dining specials and prix fixe menus from Friday, May 25 through Monday, May, 27, Memorial Day weekend.
