If you have read Station Eleven, the book choice for 2015 One Book One Town, you are aware that the survivors had to learn to forage to stay alive. The Fairfield Public Branch Library, 1147 Fairfield Woods Road, is hosting foraging expert Ellen Zachos Sunday, March 15, at 2 p.m.

Zachos is a garden writer and photographer, and an instructor at the New York Botanical Garden. She will be showing us how a surprising number of favorite garden plants can nourish both body and soul.

Learn how to recognize, harvest and prepare foods like wintergreen sorbet, rosehip soup and dahlia tuber bread from plants you already have around your home and yard. She is the author of six books including Backyard Foraging: 65 Familiar Plants You Didn’t Know You Could Eat.

Advance registration is required due to the limited space. All programs at the Fairfield Public Library are free of charge. For more information and to register for this event call 203-256-3160, or visit
