The program includes a slide show, a short walk to identify edible plants in the Watchung Reservation, and a habitat conservation exercise in which attendees can help remove an excess growth of wild watercress from nearby Hermit’s Pond, which will enable other species to populate the pond.

Participants who volunteer to help are invited to taste recipes made with wild edibles including watercress soup, wild salad, and sumac “lemonade.”

She is a Licensed Dietitian Nutritionist, Certified Rutgers Master Gardener, certified science teacher, and Pennsylvania Master Naturalist.
