Emily Carvalho’s Bio:
Emily Carvalho is a naturalist with a passion for inspiring others to cultivate their own relationships with the natural world through gardening, foraging, and wildlife watching. Born and raised in Dorchester, Emily’s fascination for flora and fauna started in childhood and led her to the University of Maine where she studied wildlife ecology and environmental sciences. She is an avid bird watcher and wildlife photographer with 10 years of experience learning, working, and teaching others about the natural world. Emily is dedicated to educating others on the importance of understanding and stewarding our natural world in urban landscapes. Experience Emily’s enthusiasm and join her this season to learn more about bird ecology and identification, wild edible plants, and food as medicine.

Description of the Event:
Springtime is a foragers delight as the days grow longer and the thawing ground welcomes back tender greens and blooming trees. Join Emily Carvalho for a guided tour through Clark farm to discover some of the commonly known and not so commonly known edible plants hiding in plain sight in our hedgerows and under our feet. We will learn to properly identify plants and safely harvest them. Whether interested in learning more about plant ecology, gaining knowledge about wild edibles or discovering ways to incorporate these plants into your daily life, we welcome all interested in creating a deeper connection to the outdoors. We will end the program with foraged snacks and refreshments crafted by Emily. Having a notebook or cell phone for note taking is highly recommended. Please wear comfortable shoes, dress appropriately for the weather, and bring a water bottle. Sign up today!
