Edible Outdoors Iowa City will be hosting an urban greens foraging event Sunday, May 22. The walking tour will meet at Longfellow Elementary School at 10 a.m.

Kathy Dice of Red Fern Farm will lead the tour, and participants can expect to learn how to harvest, prepare and preserve commonly found edibles from our community yards and parks.

The foraging tour incorporates a 1.5 mile route along Iowa City’s east side. Following the walk, participants will enjoy a cooking demonstration at Creekside Park.

“The Urban Greens Foraging class provides hands-on, active learning, that shows people what they can harvest for dinner in their own backyard or nearby park,” said Rachel Vanderwerff.
