The Virginia Cooperative Extension and Master Gardeners will sponsor a presentation on “Wild Woody Edibles” at 6 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 25, at Rady Park in Warrenton.
Tim MacWelch, Fauquier native and owner of Advanced Survival Training, will lead a stroll through the Rady Park Arboretum to identify and discuss edible parts of trees and shrubs, many of them nutritious and delicious. Mr. MacWelch will discuss proper identification, use of the plants and collection techniques. Participants will see firsthand many wild edibles available in the fall season, including native Paw Paw trees. 
Mr. MacWelch, who has more than 20 years’ experience in survival training, operates a camp in Southern Fauquier, where he takes a hands-on approach to teaching about wild edibles, survival skills, tracking, trapping, primitive cooking, bushcraft, wilderness first aid, medicines and more. He is a frequent public speaker for preparedness groups and writes for Outdoor Life Magazine, Survival Dispatch and OFFGRID Magazine. He has written three bestselling survival books and the new Ultimate Bushcraft Survival Manual

“Wild Woody Edibles” presentation is part of the Fauquier/Rappahannock Master Gardeners’ Twilight Tuesdays program, a series of horticultural classes held from spring to fall each year. Taught by horticultural experts and seasoned Master Gardeners, the workshops cover a broad range of topics – from gardening techniques and tips, to advances in environmental and conservation issues.  The series provides local gardeners with innovative gardening techniques and best practices that they can put to use in their own home gardens.

The program is free of charge and open to the public, rain or shine. Participants will meet under the pavilion and walk approximately one-half mile.  It will last 60 to 90 minutes. Organizers recommend registering and arriving early.
