Eating on the Wild Side

Eating on the Wild Side

Selecting, storing and preparing your produce for maximum nutrition and flavor.



Bucks County Foodshed Alliance and the Bucks Chapter of Buy Fresh Buy Local® present an educational talk by forager and food preserver Susan Pierson, who is taking an in-depth look at food activist Jo Robinson’s popular book, Eating on the Wild Side: The Missing Link to Optimal Health, on Wednesday,  October 5,  7-8:30pm at Plumsteadville Grange, 5901 Old Easton Road, Plumsteadville 18949. Registration not required; no charge; donations accepted.

Pierson, a lifelong Bucks resident and gardener, is a BCFA board member and member of its BFBL Committee. She has demonstrated food fermentation and preserving techniques at farmers markets and educational presentations, and she can’t pass a field with wild greens without stopping to forage. 

Since farming began, humans have been diminishing the nutritional value of vegetables and fruits. By selecting the sweetest varieties that please the palate, we have chosen plants that are high in sugar and starch and low in vitamins, fiber, minerals and antioxidants. 

Eating on the Wild Side reveals the solution. Pierson guides attendees through which varieties to choose from farmer’s markets and local producers and gives tips on how to prepare foods in ways that enhance their nutrition and flavor. You will also learn how to select, store, and cook your everyday vegetables for maximum flavor and nutrition. Join BCFA and BFBL for an educational evening that will change the way you think about food.
