Urban Foraging Tour
Gwynns Falls/Leakin Park

Thursday, October 21, 2010
10:00am – 12:00pm

Food from Gwynns Falls/Leakin Park? What!? Yes, indeed you can find food right in the City’s urban parks. Tour the park with forager, committed locavore, botanist, and author Leda Meredith. Leda will be sharing her wisdom and teaching us how to identify edibles in the urban terrain. At the end of the foraging walk, we will have lunch and spend some time on a Q & A with Leda as we taste treats made with wild edible ingredients.

We recommend you wear comfortable shoes and bring a bag lunch, water, a pen and paper, and perhaps a camera to record the plants you’ve found.

There is a $5 suggested donation for this event.

To RSVP, please email Alex Kraus or call her at (410) 448-5663 ext. 119. Meet at the Crimea Mansion.

Baltimore City Public Schools
Baltimore, Maryland
Baltimore may not be the first city that comes to mind when talking about great vegan food, but Baltimore City Public Schools recently decided to focus on student health. The school district has adopted Meatless Mondays, which means that no meat is served in its schools on Mondays! The district teamed up with local farmers and distributors to provide its students with fresh, locally raised fruits and vegetables. Menu items also include black-bean nachos, vegetarian chili, and veggie lasagne.
