at "Wildman" Steve Brill - Central Park Inside Central Park W & W 72nd St, New York, New York 10023

Central Park provides a great window into the world of wild foods in  early spring. Making a meal with these plants is simple at this time of the year. For an appetizer, try simmering field garlic bulbs in diluted vinegar with Italian seasonings, to make an outstanding pickle. It's the peak of the season for wild salad greens, and we'll be finding...

Prospect Park (Kids 12 & Under)

at "Wildman" Steve Brill - Brooklyn Prospect Park - Brooklyn, Brooklyn, New York 11238

Prospect Park provides such a superabundance of wild foods in mid-spring, it's hard to cover them all in just four hours. We begin with spicy hedge mustard, corn-flavored chickweed, and spinach-flavored lamb's quarters, all growing near the park's Grand Army Plaza entrance. Then we move along to goutweed, taking over along the path near the Vale...

Saxon Woods (Kids 12 & Under)

at "Wildman" Steve Brill - White Plains Saxon Woods Park Parking lot 1800 Mamaroneck Ave, White Plains, New York 10605

The sunny borders between woodlands and the parking lot provide prime habitat for various wild herbs and greens. We'll look for sheep sorrel and wood sorrel, with their wonderful lemony flavors, plus goutweed, which tastes like parsley, carrots, and celery. Poor man's pepper, a common, delicious wild mustard, also appears in great abundance in sunny...

This vastly underappreciated park offers all the best wild foods of the rich seashore habitat, a great place for everyone to celebrate the peak of spring. The sandy soil is poor, limiting tree growth, but benefiting plants that can take advantage of the full sunlight, nutrient-poor soil, and relative lack of competition, and Violet Brill, America's...

Inwood Hill Park (Kids 12 & Under)

at "Wildman" Steve Brill - Manhattan Anne Loftus Playground, New York, New York 10040

Inwood Hill Park is one of the best places for foraging in late fall. The city's hilliest park, with a large, mature forest, meadows, thickets, and cultivated areas, it's loaded with wild plants, even in late fall. This is the time to search for roots. Here are some we'll be finding: Burdock, an invasive, Eurasian, expensive, detoxifying herb sold...

Forest Park (Kids 12 & Under)

at "Wildman" Steve Brill - New York 8040 Park Lane, Kew Gardens, New York 11415

Forest Park is one of the best places for foragers in mid-spring. Get lost in this vast park, and you'll have plenty to eat (that is, if you can distinguish the gourmet plants from the deadly ones.) It boasts a large, mature, secondary growth forest, trail edges, thickets, and cultivated areas—all overflowing with wild plants, and Violet Brill,...
