This is one of the most biodiverse regions in the world, with so much to offer in the way of food, medicine, and, of course, beauty. Join Abby to learn all about our edible wild plants.

Abby, a botanist, herbalist, and forager, will take you on an adventure into the forest and open spaces to see what free foods and herbs surround us, how we safely and ethically harvest them, and how to preserve them. We'll get to use all our senses, to identify, smell, touch, taste, and learn more about these plants. Bring your questions, field guides, notebooks, and cameras, along with hiking boots, rain jackets, and water bottles.

Family friendly, Kids ages 5-10 are free!!! Please look for dates on our calendar as dates vary and locations change.

Cost: $28
