Book cover: Wild Plants I've Known ...and Eaten, (Russ Cochen, 2014)

Author of "Wild Plants I've Known ...and Eaten" to host Edible Plant Walk at Stearns Farm,

FRAMINGHAM, MA - The Sudbury Valley Trustees is hosting an edible wild plants walk from 4:30pm to 7:00pm, Tuesday, September 9th, 2014 at Stearns Farm in Framingham.

Russ Cohen, of the MA Department of Fish & Game Riverways Program, will lead the walk to look for edible plants.

Cohen is a foraging expert and author of "Wild Plants I Have Known… and Eaten," according to an announcement from the trustees.

Stearns Farm and its adjacent woodlands are home to more than 30 species of edible wild plants, many of which are more nutritious and/or flavorful than their cultivated counterparts.

Join Russ on a late afternoon/evening ramble through the farm (and, if time permits, the adjoining woods) to learn about at least 18 species of edible wild plants. Depending on weather conditions, several edible mushroom species may be encountered as well!

Keys to the identification of each species will be provided, along with information on edible portions, seasons of availability, and preparation methods, as well as guidelines for safe and environmentally responsible foraging.

This is a free event for Stearns Farm CSA members, in addition to SVT members, (Stearns Farm members, please check the SVT member box when registering for this program).  Non-Member Fee: $10

Pre-registration is required.

For more information, visit the SVT website at: www.svtweb.org or call 978-443-5588.

Since the Tripoli Barbershop moved to their location a few blocks away I have been working with the Police Chief and Lee Mencoboni, the owner of La Cantina and this property to make it a community policing substation. I am very proud that my last official act as a Selectman will be this ceremony. It merges my long standing efforts to invest in public safety and my love for the neighborhood where my father and I grew up. "

Framingham Chief of Police Kenneth Ferguson commented: "The implementation of this substation is an excellent example of community policing in action, your police collaborating with public and private partners for the betterment of the community."
