Jenna Rozelle and April O’Keefe do it again … this time in Rye.
Introduction to Wildcrafting–Part II
Wednesday, September 16; 5 to 8 p.m.
This workshop features many plants that not were not available at the previous location.
Join Jenna Rozelle and April O’Keefe to learn about the practice and ethics of wildcrafting for food and medicine. This time we’ll walk through a 10-acre property in Rye, New Hampshire near the Seacoast. Jenna will discuss the basics of foraging and identify the edible and medicinal plants that grow in the area. April will provide information about how foragers and wild crafters can ensure plant survival and habitat for future generations.
Jenna is a professional forager who provides fresh wild ingredients for several top chefs and small craft breweries on the Seacoast. April O’Keefe is a practicing herbalist and owner of AOK Herbals in Kittery.

Wildcrafting is the practice of harvesting plants from their natural, or “wild” habitat, for food or medicinal purposes. It applies to uncultivated plants wherever they may be found, and is not necessarily limited to wilderness areas. Ethical considerations are often involved, such as protecting endangered species.
