Event Description

Slow Food Shoreline and the Connecticut-Westchester Mycological Association are joining together for a Wild Spring Edibles Walk at William E. Wolfe Park in Monroe. On this four hour walk, participants will learn to identify common wild edible plants and mushrooms of mid-spring. In the morning, we'll be hunting for prized spring mushrooms such as Oysters, Chicken-of-the-Woods, Enokis, Wine-Cap Stropharias, and Morels. At noon, we'll take a break to sample some of the wild foods collected by our guide throughout April. After lunch, we'll focus on the wild edible plants available throughout the park. Participants will leave with a greater appreciation of the delicious and nutrient-rich flora growing all over the region this time of year.

This event is open to both Slow Food members and non-members, 15 years of age and older. Since this is a free event and space is limited, please register for this event only if you are certain that you will be able to attend. If your plans change, please email us at slowfoodshoreline@gmail.com to cancel so someone else has the chance to join us. We will also send a final confirmation request by email during the week before the event.


This event is unfortunately full.  Please visit the ticket site to have your name placed on the waiting list.

Investing in People, Place, and Resilient Rural Economies: Q&A with Caitlin Cain

"The infrastructure of our communities is not just physical; it is also social and economic,” said Caitlin Cain, the new director of Rural LISC. In a wide-ranging conversation, she talks about the impact of COVID-19, the importance of investing in communities of color and the tremendous range of rural innovation that already exists—and needs appropriate capital to grow.

LISC CEO Maurice A. Jones joined a panel of researchers and other experts brought together by the Philadelphia Fed to discuss how government at all levels can help small businesses recover from the pandemic, and how these programs must evolve to ensure equitable recovery. The webinar is part of an ongoing series examining best practices for bringing about equity as we emerge from the crisis.

Building the Skills & Confidence to Land a Good Job: One Woman's Journey

Volunteers of America Texas (VOATX) in Houston is one of more than 40 community-based partners nationwide using LISC’s Bridges to Career Opportunities model. LaSonya Bishop, VOATX’s Regional Director of Workforce, explores what it takes to help unemployed and underemployed people build their skills and find good-paying jobs – a task that is more challenging than ever with the pandemic. She does so through the lens of a Houston resident named Tamara, who overcame addiction and homelessness to graduate from a VOATX training program and get a job as a phlebotomist, which she has maintained since Covid-19 hit our shores. This is just one of many success stories catalyzed by LISC’s partnership with the Citi Foundation.
