LEAF Presents: Wild Edibles With Rob Shearer

Join the Lakewood Earth & Food (LEAF) Community for an educational session on foraging and wild edible with Rob Shearer. The presentation will take place on Wednesday, September 17th at 7 p.m. in the Engine Room (downstairs) of the Buckeye Beer Engine (15315 Madison Ave.).

Rob Shearer is a local wild foods enthusiast, who has been foraging, growing, and preparing wild edibles in some manner for more than 30 years. Recently, his passion for healthy, local, natural foods has led him to explore the world of wild edibles in much deeper way, and he has expanded a once rudimentary knowledge into a working vocabulary of many of the edible plants that most would consider weeds.

The wild edibles presentation will touch on some of the more common, easily identified, and interesting wild foods that can be found around Northeast Ohio. We will take a look at some tasty local wild greens, mushrooms, nuts, fruits, and berries that can be found from the deepest Ohio forests to your own backyard. Please join us for some interesting conversation, share some knowledge, and maybe even a tasty treat or two!  

As always, this LEAF educational event is free and open to the public.
