Saturday, April 21, 2018. Dining Out with Scott: In Search of Edible Plants

(Broward & Dade trip organized by the Broward Chapter.) This trip will be led by Scott Bryan, the Broward April 11 speaker. Not all edibles are delicious, and you might learn which are enjoyable to dine on or are merely survival food. Bring a lunch, if you like – you will probably still be hungry.

Time, address and directions are in the newsletter mailed to members. Please join to enjoy all the activities of the chapter!
