Where the Wild Things Are Starts This Weekend!

The Where the Wild Things Are foraging walks begin this weekend with Aimee Gelinas and Blanche Derby. Both walks are Sold Out but there is still space available for the six other walks taking place throughout the Berkshires until May 20.

Japanese Knotweed, also known as fleeceflower, Mexican bamboo and huzhang, is sprouting up across our region. As a non-native invasive species, our local chefs are making an effort to cook it up during Berkshire Grown’s Farmed + Foraged weekend so we can eat it into submission! We are also encouraging everyone to harvest and cook it into delicious dessert bars or a Japanese Knotweed pie. Photos of Japanese Knotweed below:

We hope to see you on one of the walks this Spring!
