Fall Edible and Medicinal Plant Walk
August 28 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm
Dana Driscoll – Join us on an interactive walk to learn about 15-20 edible and medicinal plants that are in-season during the fall months. The plant walk will include the ethics, best practices, and tools of wild food and medicine foraging. The walk will also cover plant identification practices, botany, plant and local ecology. We will place a special emphasis on harvesting invasive plants as well as reciprocating care for the local ecosystem. Plants covered in this walk include oak (acorns), hickory, spicebush, autumn olive, wild grape, witch hazel, wintergreen, partridgeberry, goldenrod, and more. Please have appropriate footwear for light hiking and bug spray.
