Foraging for edibles in the wild, also known as Horta hunting, has been around for centuries, but problem is figuring out what is edible and what is not.
To that end, the Espanola Gardeners can help with special speaker Sari Huhtala, from Spanish coming in to address the public.
Gardeners’ spokesperson Grant Lewis says she is an expert and will be sharing her knowledge on Monday, June 12th at the Northern Life Church at 7:00 pm to help interested individuals identify wild edibles in the forest, around the house and in the garden.
He adds she will also demonstrate ways to harvest and preserve them to anyone who wishes to attend the workshop.
Horta is the publisher and founder of Alive+Fit Magazine. The magazine was 14 years in print and is now digital. She also owns 70 acres of pristine old growth forest on the shores of the North Channel with trails, protected wetlands, and scenic vistas. The Laughing Forest connects one with nature and is ripe with edible food.
