Free, healthy food from the park?
You can find delicious wild edible plants and mushrooms right in the city's parks. Take a guided tour of Prospect Park with forager, committed locavore and Brooklyn Botanic Garden instructor, Leda Meredith. Leda will teach us how to safely identify and harvest edibles in the urban terrain.
Leda Meredith is the author of The Locavore's Handbook: The Busy Person's Guide to Eating Local on a Budget.
