About the Event
Among choruses of insects and birds, plants remind us to listen for quiet messages too. We will find full flowers to sample and rich green leaves, some perhaps past due for harvest. Learn about elder, bee balm, jewelweed, wild roses, selfheal, daylily, mullein, and others that thrive in wild and cultivated places alike. Taste a yummy wild snack. Create an intentional grid or artful collage with plant samples, and hold space for Nature’s gifts and your inspired thoughts.
