Edibles and Medicinal Plants in Your Backyard and Forest

— Written By and last updated by

The N.C. Cooperative Extension Service is offering a free seminar on Edible and Medicinal Plants in Your Backyard and Forest. This event will be held online Wednesday, November 4, 2020, from 10–11:30 a.m. via Zoom.

There has been a long tradition of foraging for berries, leaves, roots, fungi, and other materials in the forest for personal use, to sell at local farmers markets, road stands, and online. This program will be an intro to the more common medicinal and edible plants in one’s backyard, landscape, and forest area.
