Did you know that the Viles Arboretum used to be a farm that grew food for the Augusta Mental Health Institute? Over 150 years later, this land is still producing food, but now it is the wild plants of the forests and fields. To learn how to identify these plants, join expert wild forager, Russ Cohen, for a ramble through the arboretum’s landscape. Russ, who has over 45 years of experience identifying, propagating, sustainably harvesting and cooking with wild plants, will show you native edible species that you can plant in your landscape and also many non-native weeds that offer plentiful foraging opportunities. Russ is the author of Wild Plants I Have Known…and Eaten.
