Talk and Taste with Alan Muskat


Alan Muskat, wild foods expert and founder of No Taste Like Home, presents “How Foraging Can Save The World,” a special talk-and-taste event at East Fork Asheville.



Foraging means much more than gathering wild food. It means going back to hunter-gatherer culture. Hunter-gatherer culture can save the world. In fact, it’s the only thing that can. What replaced hunter-gatherer culture is civilization. Understanding the difference between civilization and hunter-gatherer culture starts with one question: do we have to grow food or does food grow itself?

Join us for an intimate talk on “How Foraging Can Save The World” with local wild foods expert and philosaforager, Alan Muskat. Read the full description here.

Doors open at 7pm and talk begins around 7:15pm, followed by a Q&A, a casual tasting and wine pairing of three foraged small bites, with time to shop, talk and mingle into the evening.
