Bevin Cohen, Small House Farm

Morel mushrooms, wild onions, and tender spring greens await the hungry forager! Join us as we talk with George Barnett, founder of The Hungry Forager and author of the new book, Foraging Kentucky.

George Barnett owns and operates the Hungry Forager, an educational program based in the Bluegrass region and focused on teaching people about wild edibles, ethnobotany, ecology, and agroforestry. His educational background includes restoration ecology, foraging, and the history of utilizing tree crops in North America.

His new book, Foraging Kentucky is an expansive beginners' guide to safely and ethically foraging wild foods. The species covered in the book are divided into three categories: herbaceous plants, fungi, and woody plants. George shares his extensive knowledge on the proper identification of the featured species, where and when they grow, and how to harvest and prepare them for consumption. Complete with high-definition color photographs, recipes, and short history lessons, this guide is chock-full of crucial information!
