foraged FOOD

Most people think of Spring as the prime food foraging season with flowers in full bloom & greens at their most tender.  But don’t dismiss Fall.  Mushrooms abound as well as a number of nuts and berries.  For all those caffeine addicts, some holly leaves have more caffeine by weight than coffee beans, just don’t eat the berries, please.  This next Call comes from a place home to one of North America’s largest collections of holly species & a large Edible Gardens.  Take a look…

Check out this Call for Proposals from Bernheim Arboretum & Research Forest for 2018 Artists in Residency.  There is a stipend but no entry fee.  The gift of time is invaluable to every artist.  Could this be the residency for you?
