Bloedel Reserve presents the Front Yard Forager Lecture and book reading lecture at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, May 8.
Seattle-based author Melany Vorass-Herrera will discuss her book on foraging techniques. Vorass-Herrera takes everyday weeds – those that grow in our yards, parking lots and public spaces – and creates nutritious and delicious recipes, such as Dandelion Flower Fritters and Cream of Stinging Nettle Soup.
Her lecture will teach you how to forage for those “trashy” plants and turn them into culinary delights. Weather permitting, Melany will lead the group through a “wild” part of Bloedel Reserve in search of weeds.
Tickets are $8 for members, and $10 for non-members.
