      Wild Edibles - Apple Edition (2019)

      A bite of Vermont’s forgotten apples is a taste of history. Hiding in plain sight within almost every natural area and neglected back woods are abandoned apple orchards harkening to a bygone Vermont. What most nature walkers dismiss as “crabapples” are often the nearly extinct relics of the nineteenth-century heirloom varietals that made New England the global center of apple cultivation. Join NBNC naturalists on a tasty exploration of re-wilded orchards to learn about the natural and cultural history of our venerable state fruit. We’ll do some wild-style apple picking, then return to the trailhead to press fresh cider and cook up our bounty. Led by NBNC naturalists and educators Sean Beckett and Ken Benton. $30 for NBNC or HMC Members / $35 for Non-members Minimum age: 15 (or 12 with parent).Must be able to hike off-trail on uneven forest floor up to a mile. Meeting location TBD within 15 minutes of NBNC. Hosted by North Branch Nature Center and Hunger Mountain Co-op
