Field: Seeds and Grain for the Future, with the Greenbelt Native Plant Center and the team at Agern & Great Northern Food Hall

Learn about edible wild plants and take a behind-the-scenes tour of New York City’s largest seed bank at a one-day workshop led by Tama Matsuoka Wong, author of Foraged Flavor, which was nominated for a James Beard award in 2013.

At 11 a.m., join Helen Forgione, senior ecologist for the Natural Areas Conservancy, on an optional nature walk where you’ll learn to identify native and invasive species.

The workshop begins at noon with a tour of the Greenbelt Native Plant Center by Ed Toth and Heather Liljegren, followed by lunch prepared by Agern Restaurant’s Chef de Cuisine, Joe Yardley.

This event is cohosted by the Natural Areas Conservancy, the Greenbelt Native Plant Center, Tama Matsuoka Wong, and the team behind Agern Restaurant and Great Northern Food Hall.
