Russ Cohen has recently completed his 50th year of leading walks and talks about wild edibles. His foraging book, “Wild Plants I Have Known...and Eaten,” came out in June of 2004, and is now in its eighth printing. Since his retirement in June 2015, while continuing to offer walks and talks on foraging for wild edibles, Russ now plays the role of Johnny Appleseed for native edible species. River Walk is one of Russ’ sowing sites, and we are likely to encounter several species from his nursery that were planted there.
