Feb. 25, 2013 - PRLog -- As a working farm and ranch, Four Mile Historic Park was once supplied with edibles primarily from the land around the buildings, either in organized gardens or by gathering wild edibles that grew in the area.  Join us at our Victorian Tea where Kate Armstrong, Urban Forager, will share the usefulness of the plants we normally ignore now; how some of them were brought to America from Europe because of their use as food and medicine; and how most rural and urban people knew how to supply themselves with simple meals, home remedies, and household products from these plants.

About Four Mile Historic Park: Four Mile Historic Park offers visitors a first-hand look at the lifestyle of the earliest settlers in the area and how they prospered into the 1880s. The Park is the site of Denver's oldest standing house, Four Mile House Museum. The house and outbuildings provide the centerpiece for a journey into the past, where students can directly experience what it was like to travel to the new frontier, with both the hardships and wonderment of this adventure.

About the Presenter: Kate Armstrong has an educational and entertaining style that will add to your knowledge of these earlier times, give you food for thought, and may even interest you in harvesting some of the plants you now consider weeds! She brings a lifetime of experience to the subject as well as a wealth of helpful information. There will also be examples of the products she makes and uses from her backyard, the alley ways, and the neighborhoods in Denver. You will be able to identify (and taste) plants that are already up and growing since she will be bringing examples of these with her. http://urbanforager.co/about-kate-armstrong/

Four Mile Historic Park is operated in cooperation with the City and County of Denver and the City of Glendale, and is a Tier III member of the Scientific & Cultural Facilities District (SCFD).
