The Midwest Wild harvest Festival invites people of all ages, backgrounds, and experience levels. Held at the beginning of the fall harvest season, the festival is a celebration of the Midwest's bounty of wild food. The weekend combines recreation and education into an unforgettable experience.
2014's keynote speaker will be Leda Meredith. Leda has a new book coming out in April titled: Northeast Foraging:120 Wild and Flavorful Edibles from Beach Plums to Wineberries.
Participants will learn about wild edibles and their uses from knowledgeable instructors and speakers. There will be activities for children and adults, field trips, presentations, demonstrations, a cooking contest, a potluck banquet, and lots of hands-on activities. You'll have a chance to interact with other foraging enthusiasts from around the region and beyond.
We are also excited to have Doug Elliott with us for the weekend. Doug is an outstanding all-around naturalist. Visit his website for details: http://www.dougelliott.com
