The Slow Food Philadelphia Restaurant School is holding a class on April 13: Foraging Wild Foods and the Farms of Lancaster County. Casey Spacht, General Manager of the Lancaster Farm Fresh Cooperative, the co-owner of the Lancaster Farmacy and leader of the Lancaster Farmacy’s Community Supported Medicine (CSM) program will be leading the session.

An expert at identifying prized gems found in the wilderness, Spacht will be teaching students how best to put these foods to use. He will explore the multitude of plants that naturally grow in the Philadelphia area and can be used in dishes or for medicinal uses.

The $20 class fee contributes to the fresh and dried herbal tastings that Spacht will use to demonstrate the art of Do-It-Yourself foraging. Seats are limited and tickets may be purchased online.
