Event Details

Join Debbie Naha-Koretzky, “The Wild Edibles Lady,” for a foraging adventure to discover the edible plants of our area. The program will include a slide show followed by a foraging walk.

Signed copies of her book, Foraging Pennsylvania and New Jersey (2021, Falcon Guides), will be available.

Debbie is a registered dietitian/nutritionist, Rutgers Master Gardener, Pennsylvania Master Naturalist, certified science teacher, and wild foods author. She has conducted countless foraging programs for state organizations, environmental centers, native plant societies, state parks and more. She received her master’s degree in Clinical Nutrition from New York University. This specialized training allows for a unique approach to wild edible plants.

The program will cover plant identification, safety, look-alike plants, sustainable harvesting, cooking with wild plants, and of course, nutrition.
