Providence Public LIbrary welcomes The 3 Foragers on May 10

PPL Welcomes The 3 Foragers for a Book Talk on Edible Plant Foraging, May 10

PROVIDENCE, RI -- Providence Public Library will welcome The 3 Foragers, authors of Adventures in Edible Plant Foraging on Wednesday, May 10 from 6:30 – 8 pm in the Library’s Meeting Room, 3rd Floor, 150 Empire Street, Providence.  The 3 Foragers will discuss the edible plants and fungi of spring, with their original photos and recipe ideas featured in an educational slide-show and talk. 

The program is open and free as part of the Library's ongoing On the Table program series.  Books for sale and signing following program. 

As the warmer temperatures and longer days of spring unfold, many tender, young edible shoots, plants, flowers, and even a few fungi awaken a forager’s senses and delight. Learn how to identify, sustainably harvest, and prepare the wild foods of spring, from invasive bamboo shoots to the lemony tang of fresh wood sorrel, including some of the early edible mushrooms of the season, like morels and the winecap mushroom.

The 3 Foragers are a southeastern Connecticut family who’ve been identifying, photographing, and cooking with the edible plants and fungi of New England for more than 12 years. Their blog, Facebook page, and newly published book all focus on family-friendly, environmentally sustainable harvest of both our native and invasive species of plants, and ways to incorporate these foods into your diet with original recipes.
