Incredible Edibles: A Native Plant Class with Smart Farm of Barrington

Smart Farm of Barrington is excited to have Naturalist, Navraaz Basati host a 2 hour adventure in edible plant exploration coming up from 10 am to 1 pm on Saturday, February 22nd.

During this class you will learn the basics of how to:

  • Identify edible native plants and their culinary purposes
  • Add these plants/fruits to our modern day diets
  • Grow and harvest local and native, micro greens, berries, herbs, nuts and fruits that have called Illinois their home for thousands of years.

This class will help you create a multifaceted relationship with native and local plants to support your specific health needs on many levels.

The class will be held at The Smart Farm Learning Center, 490 W IL 22 in Lake Barrington. Please note that GPS is incorrect. Smart Farm is located west of Advocate Good Shepherd Hospital and east of Kelsey Rd on the North Side of Rte 22.

The fee to register is $25 with additional family members at $10/each. Class size is limited. Click here to register today!

Navraaz Basati is a Barrington area writer, documentary film maker, radio host & producer. Basati cultivates gardens that experiment with wild edibles and organic practices while growing food for family meals which she features at 7coursesoftime.wordpress.com.


Founded in 2008, Smart Farm is a volunteer-run, non-profit with a two-fold mission: to grow fresh produce for our neighbors in need and be an educational resource for local residents on sustainable gardening practices, healthy eating and local food waste distribution. Though their work focuses on a small geographic area, Smart Farm’s cause is universal & essential: bright food for a healthy, sharing community. SmartFarms.org

“When managing serious mental illness (SMI), the recovery journey can be long and challenging. It often requires creative and prolonged efforts to build and maintain a full life, but many people do reach recovery. In fact, up to 65% of people living with SMI experience partial to full recovery over time.

The term ‘recovery’ refers to the process of learning how to minimize the symptoms associated with SMI. Note that recovery does not mean symptoms stop entirely or that deficits disappear. Ultimately, recovery is not synonymous with ‘cured.’ Rather, it means reaching a place where you are able to pursue a safe, dignified and meaningful life.”
