Wild Edibles Planting Day – May 15, 2021

Posted May 7, 2021

Join the Wareham Land Trust, Mass Audubon, and edible plant educator and grower, Russ Cohen, for a day of planting at Mass Audubon’s Great Neck Wildlife Sanctuary!

Russ Cohen has 46 years of experience leading programs about wild edibles and has written a book on the subject: “Wild Plants I Have Known…and Eaten”. Since his retirement, Russ has taken up the role of “Johnny Appleseed for native edible species”, as he grows over 1,000 native edible plants that he then donates to land trusts, state and federal agencies, tribal groups and others, to plant on their properties.

This Great Neck planting event will take place Saturday, May 15th from 11am to 2pm and will be a fun-filled day of learning about and planting the edible plants that Russ has donated to the Sanctuary.

Please bring water, a lunch or snack, a pair of work gloves, and dress in hiking/work clothes and boots.

This event is free, but there is a cap of 20 participants, so please click here to RSVP.

Many thanks to the Wareham Cultural Council for funding and support of this event.
