From the Field: Summer Foraging Tips at AutoCamp Catskills

5 Wild Edible Plants of the Season

We’ve partnered with Sean Rowe to offer unique foraging experiences in the Catskills for guests and visiting musicians. We’re excited that Sean will be filming an upcoming series, Can I Eat This, at AutoCamp where each episode he and a guest singer-songwriter will venture out to forage seasonal varieties, cook them up back at camp, and play a cover song together in the Airstream.

Sean brought this experience to guests during our Gone Upstate weekend on July 19. Guests ventured out on the same expedition to learn to identify and find delicious wild edibles.

Back at the AutoCamp Clubhouse, Sean provided an immersive cooking demonstration and sampling for anyone to try. Afterward, he strapped on the guitar and performed an intimate set of songs on the lawn! It was the perfect Upstate weekend.

Watch the full episode of Can I Eat This, where Sean forages with clawhammer banjo aficionado and Brooklyn based musician, Taylor Ashton. The two venture to nearby Falling Waters preserve, conveniently located near AutoCamp Catskills.
