Many people don’t realize they are surrounded by edible plants. Join Debra Naha-Koretzky, the Wild Edibles Lady, for a fun program that will open your eyes to the world of wild edibles. As she likes to say about invasives, ‘If you can’t beat ‘em, eat ‘em!’ The program will include a wild tea tasting and attendees may also take home a wild recipe or two.

She is a licensed dietitian nutritionist, a certified Rutgers master gardener, a certified science teacher and a Pennsylvania master naturalist. She has conducted countless foraging programs on plant nutrition, identification, safety, look-alike plants, sustainable harvesting and more.
