Brooklyn Foraging Walk


My next wild foods walk is on October 17th in Prospect Park. (After that it is Central Park's Ramble, on November 15th).

Here are the details:

Prospect Park
17 October 2015, 12pm - 2pm

Crossing from east to west through Prospect Park's diverse midriff  we will spot a wide range of wild edible plants, from lawn denizens such as plantain, dandelions and chicory to indigenous forest plants and herbs, as well as invasive weeds like Japanese knotweed and burdock. 

If we are lucky, we may spot a maitake mushroom. October is their month.

A wild foods snack will be served en route. 

Hen of the woods (maitake)

We meet at the park entrance at the corner of Prospect Park West and Prospect Park Southwest. The closest subways are the F and G to Prospect Park.

Confirmation emails and additional details will be sent to confirmed walkers the week before the walk, to the email address you provide when booking.

  1. Maitake - Mai means "dance" and "take" means a mushroom. It's named like that because when a hunter finds a Maitake, he/she is so happy and starts dancing. We Japanese love maitake! It's so amazing you can find a maitake in Brooklyn. One day I would like to go mushroom hunting in New York.
