John Root will speak at the Bridgewater Public Library on the subject of “Edible Wild Plants of the Northeast” at 7p.m. on Tuesday, September 25th.

This 90-minute power point presentation features distinguishing characteristics, seasons of availability, habitats, methods of preparation, and nutritional value of our region’s most common and appealing wild plants. Questions and comments are welcome throughout the presentation. Food samples are offered to participants, and illustrated pamphlets with plant descriptions, guidelines for responsible and safe foraging, and a bibliography for further study are distributed as well.
The program, which is free and open to the public, is supported by the Friends of the Bridgewater Public Library and by a grant from the Bridgewater Cultural Council, a local agency which is supported by the Massachusetts Cultural Council, a state agency.
