Spring foraging class

wild onions

This could be an interesting afternoon: The Cornell Cooperative Extension of Columbia & Greene Counties has a spring foraging class this Saturday, May 13:

Come explore the grounds at the Extension Education Center and learn about the value of woodlands and fields in a new way. Presenters Tusha Yakovleva, Rob Handel, and Tracey Testo will be your guides to discovering wild edibles in your surroundings. Participants will learn what is available on a seasonal basis as well as how to collect food without disturbing or endangering a plant population. Recommendations will also be given on how to safely collect food with the help of local resources and experts. Following the walk, we will move inside for a cooking lesson with Chef Rob where you will learn how to incorporate these wild foods into a meal. Locally foraged goods will be made available for samples and snacking during a Q & A to wrap up this fabulous day.


Tusha Yakovleva is a writer/farmer who authors the blog for the Hudson Valley Seed Company. Rob Handel is the chef at Heather Ridge Farm. And Tracey Testo is a program coordinator with the cooperative extension.

The class is from 1-4 pm on Saturday. It's $25 per person. And you must register by the end of today (Wednesday), May 10. (If it we had noticed this earlier, we would have mentioned it earlier.)

The event is at the Extension Education Center in Columbia County, just east of Hudson (corrected).

I don't think that's what's meant by "serpentine belt replacement".
