‘Foraging for the Seasons’ to Offer Insight into Nature’s Culinary Bounty

Published on: 2023/10/03 - in News

The Isabel Turner Branch is hosting “Foraging for the Seasons,” a program highlighting the art of foraging across different seasons. Led by foraging expert Sheila Nemcsok, the program aims to blend interactive indoor instruction with hands-on outdoor exploration.

“Sheila’s expertise in foraging has been a magnet for those interested in our region’s natural food resources,” commented Jake Miller, Librarian for Adult Programming. “This is a chance to connect with nature while discovering the delicious, seasonal bounty of local edible plants, contributing to a more sustainable way of eating.”

Participants will not only deepen their appreciation for the environment but also gain insights on integrating these nature-derived ingredients into their daily meals.

The program is slated for two sessions this fall. The first will be on Oct. 21, and the subsequent session on Nov. 18. Both sessions will run from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. at the Isabel Turner Branch. While the October session is currently open for registration, those interested in the November session can start signing up from Oct. 16.

Younger enthusiasts aren’t left out either. Nemcsok has tailored a drop-in foraging workshop specifically for teenagers, set to take place at the Calvin Park Branch on Oct. 17 at 5:30 p.m.
