Summer Edible and Medicinal Plant Walk

July 12 @ 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 summer 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, and 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 monarda, willow, hawthorn, wood nettle, elderberry, mayapple, jewelweed, spruce, plantain, and many more! Please have appropriate footwear for light hiking and bug spray.
