Organic Open House

The Organic Open House is a monthly setting, that we are committed to hosting over the long term.  This months guests are Dr. Andy Wyenandt is an Extension Specialist in Vegetable Pathology, Dr. Kristian Holmstrom Research Project Coordinator, Pest Management, and Dr. Joseph Ingerson-Mahar, Research Project Coordinator, Pest Management and the subject will be Pests and Disease control.  Best case scenario would be to hear from everyone one pest or disease concern, that we could ask for NJ Coop Extension for Organic Recomendations for.  If you have absolutely anything, please text me a photo, and any question, so I can “prime the expert”. The Open Houses are useful to provide a space for NOFANJ members to meet and talk.  The session is recorded and will be accessible on NOFANJ YouTube channel.

Farmer and Grower Series: Session 3 Foraging

Tama Matsuoka Wong is a forager, weed eater, meadow doctor , lawyer and mother of three. For longtime readers of Serious Eats, Tama Matsuoka Wong may need little introduction. Her 2013–2014 Foraged Flavor column offered up sage advice on how to forage and use, among other things, wild sumac, pine, and juniper berries, and her book of the same name—which she cowrote with Eddy Leroux, the chef de cuisine at Daniel Boulud’s flagship restaurant Daniel—was nominated for a James Beard Award in 2013. Wong still serves as the forager for Daniel and supplies other restaurants in New York City, including Agern, Gramercy Tavern, and Dirt Candy, as well as some retail outlets, like FreshDirect and Eataly.

We will hunt for the following nutritious, non-native weeds in the old farm fields. We will learn foraging harvest methods and the some of the best ways to prepare them deliciously.

  • lambsquarters
  • galinsoga
  • purslane

Bags supplied. Please bring your own clippers.
