Can I eat the mushrooms growing on that tree? Which plants from the backyard can I eat? How do the plants teach me about my environment? On this episode of Time For Lunch, Hannah and Harry are heading out to the wood (or backyard or park) to gather wild edible plants; also known as foraging! We learn from foraging experts Jeremy Umansky and Maureen Johnson about their wild and wonderful eating habits. Plus, Harry shares a recipe for wild foraged mushrooms, we hear some new jokes, and learn lots and lots of fun facts!

If you’d like to hear your voice on the show, ask a grownup to help you record yourself using the voice memo app on an iPhone and email your questions, jokes, and recipes to [email protected]
