Okay, this is the shameless plugs post. For starters:
I’ll be hosting a Slow Food event in Brooklyn, NY on June 1st. If you can make it, it would be great to meet you there. Info below (hint for blog readers only: we’ll be sampling Japanese knotweed-wood sorrel soup and red clover buttermilk bread, along with some of Renaissance Chateau’s elderberry wine):

SLOW U – WILD FORAGING IN PROSPECT PARK
Are you serious about eating Local? How serious? How about eating wild foods found right here in our own urban wildernesses, the city parks?
Come learn about wild, edible plants with Locavore Extreme, Leda Meredith in Prospect Park.
Leda is an educator, activist, and local-food expert living in Brooklyn. Read more about Leda and her pledge to eat only food from within 250 miles on her blog: ledameredith.net/wordpress
We’ll go foraging with Leda, and then make our way to Snail-of-Approval restaurant Beer Table to taste some of what we found, ask questions, and to learn how Leda is doing with her 250-mile diet pledge.
I’m capping attendance at 20 persons because I want to be able to keep my eye on you during the foraging walk (to make sure nothing goes into your mouth that shouldn’t!). To register, go to brown paper tickets.
On a different but related note, my book, Botany, Ballet, & Dinner from Scratch, is finally available for pre-order on Amazon. Here’s that info:
