Unearth the flavours of fall with Foraging for the Seasons, a captivating program led by Sheila Nemcsok that “promises to unveil the culinary treasures of the changing seasons.”

According to a release from the Kingston Frontenac Public Library (KFPL), Nemcsok, an avid hobby forager, will guide participants through a captivating journey that combines interactive, indoor classroom learning with hands-on exploration outside the Isabel Turner Branch.

Suggested for teens and adults, this program offers hands-on learning about safely and sustainably identifying, collecting and using at least 10 wild foods that are locally available and in season. The library said that attendees will leave each session with a deeper appreciation for nature, and practical know-how on how to incorporate these culinary treasures into their diets.

“Sheila’s expertise in foraging has been a magnet for those interested in our region’s natural food resources,” said Jake Miller, Librarian, Adult Programming. “This is a chance to connect with nature while discovering the delicious, seasonal bounty of local edible plants, contributing to a more sustainable way of eating.”

The fall editions of Foraging for the Seasons will take place on Saturday, Oct. 21 and Saturday, Nov. 18, 2023, from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. at the Isabel Turner Branch. Registration is required and is now open for the October session. Registration for November’s program opens on Oct. 16.

For teens, Nemcsok is running a drop-in foraging workshop at the Calvin Park Branch on Tuesday, Oct. 17, 2023, at 5:30 p.m. This workshop was made possible with the help of the Kingston Youth Climate Council. To find out more or get involved with the KYCC, click here.
