Learn how to forage for edibles

Written by 

Wild foods expert Alan Muskat of Asheville will lead a foraging workshop from 1 to 4 p.m. Friday and Saturday, Sept. 28 and 29, at Haywood Community College in Waynesville.

Participants will learn “find dining,” or how to safely identify, harvest, and prepare wild foods. The workshop will also cover wild medicines, dyeing with mushrooms. Experience the life of a modern hunter-gather firsthand with Muskat’s blend of poetry, story and song.

The workshops are being offered in conjunction with The Heritage Life Skills Fair, taking place at the Haywood County Fairgrounds nearby. The cost is $50, and pre-registration is required. www.NoTasteLikeHome.org or 828.779.2121.
