Have you eaten any wineberries yet this year? We picked several quarts up in Burtonsville this weekend. The season is winding down in DC, but head out to one of these events for a chance to find them (or maybe some blackberries, which come next on the wild berry calendar):

This Saturday, July 9, Matt and I will lead a walk leaving from the Fort Totten Metro looking for wineberries, blackberries and blueberries as well as some non-berry wild edibles. $20 - Register here.

Next week, wild food author "Wildman" Steve Brill will be in town and leading two walks on Friday, July 15. We've been meaning to go up to check out one of his foraging walks in NYC's Central Park for years, so we're really looking forward to playing hooky and joining him. $15 - Register here.

Wildman's visit is part of Eat Local First Week in DC, which also includes a Foraged Cocktail event on Friday night. We're contributing wineberry syrup, mint, and possibly other wild edibles to this event, so if you can afford the $60 ticket come check it out!

There are lots of non-foraging events on our calendar as well...enjoy!
