WESTPORT, Conn. -- Aspetuck Land Trust is offering several programs in Fairfield and Westport this summer. Among the programs are:

- “A Walk Through Eden: Edible and Medicinal Plants of the Backyard and Woods,” a plant and mushroom walk with an ethnobotanist at Caryl and Edna Haskins Preserve in Westport Sunday, Aug. 14, from 2-3:30 p.m. Did you know many invasive plants make fantastic foods and medicines? Or that many of the weeds painstakingly pulled from your garden are in fact edible and more nutritious than what you can buy in a store?
