About the Event

Ramble along a trail and learn about harvesting medicine from wild plants.

Revel in the seasonal flora and nurture your connection with plant relatives. Fun activities will help us identify plants and rediscover traditional wisdom. We will be mindful of habitat and potentially hazardous plants.

You are invited no matter your level of gardening experience or knowledge of the herbal arts. All are welcome.

Please contact us before the class if any accommodation is needed for inclusion.
