Serviceberry Foraging Party

Bring a pail or Tupperware and get ready to load up on the sweetest "secret" right under our noses!

Serviceberries (aka Juneberries) are native to Kentucky and they are planted all over the city as a common, low-maintenance street tree.

The fruits are ripe for only two weeks around June 1st. They are similar to blueberries but a little bit nutty (the trees are in the almond family!).

UofL's campus boasts many loaded serviceberries and during this special workshop, we will walk around to visit many of them!

Pick and take home as many as you can. Enjoy them fresh or freeze them for pies and smoothies year-round!

Meetup at the Garden Commons and we'll go from there. 

For inspiration, read Robin Wall Kimmerer's deeply insightful essay, The Serviceberry: An Economy of Abundance.
