Edible Natives to Grow at Home

September 16 @ 9:30 am - 12:30 pm

Join Tom Seymour, author of Wild Plants of Maine, on a walk to identify native edible plants living in their desired natural habitats, then learn how to incorporate these edibles into your home garden. Rather than foraging, this class focuses on the opportunity to grow these native edibles sustainably at home, leaving the foraging to the wildlife who need these plants for survival.

An avid writer and naturalist, Seymour writes four regular columns and a multitude of features including his popular “Maine Wildlife” for The Maine Sportsman Magazine. Seymour’s other credits include articles in Fur-Fish-Game, Maine Fish and Wildlife, Backpacker Magazine, Northern Woodlands People, Places, Plants and Maine Food & Lifestyle Magazine, among others. Seymour wrote a long-running, award-winning column “Waldo County Outdoors” for The Republican Journal (TRJ). He writes a garden column for Courier Publications and opinion pieces for TRJ. He lives in a small cabin in Waldo, Maine.
