I'm happy to announce that I will be leading a tour on July 21st at 3pm on Belle Isle organized by Slow Food RVA. All the details can be found on the event page here. I will be serving some wild food goodies at the start of this tour, lambs quarters spanakopita, blackberry thumbprint cookies, and sumacade. There is a charge for this tour, tickets can be purchased through the events page.
As with all my tours, I'd like to remind you to dress appropriately for the heat, the bugs, and the poison ivy. Please closely supervise young children and bring lots of water for you and your family. The policy of the James River Parks System is that plant removal is strictly prohibited, but you are allowed to snack on nuts, fruits and berries while in the parks. However, if you choose to do this, you should be advised that the parks system uses very aggressive herbicides in maintaining their trails.
