Edible wild plant enthusiast Bibi Snelderwaard Brion has organized an edible wild plant study club for those interested in learning more about this topic.
For a few hours each month, attendees will gather to discuss plants, ask and answer questions and guide each other into finding information.
There is no fee to join the club, unless a specific planned activity requires it.
"The first study club get-together was on March 31 at my place in Liberty,"?Brion said. "It was a fantastic first meeting, with 12 enthusiastic members and lots of discussions and food tasting."
Group members may opt to host the club's meetings and can share books, questions and/or any edible plants or recipes.
On May 2, the group will meet in Millerton to discuss wild leek and wood nettles and to share some Jerusalem artichokes.
"It's really fun for beginners as well as for experts,"?Brion said.
