Medicinal Plant Walk Around Back Cove

May 16, 2017 @ 5:30pm   Events, Member Events

As the plants reawaken to spring, we will visit with these extraordinary beings in their young stages of growth – learning to recognize their patterns across the refreshed spring landscape. Our evening will be rich with herbal folklore, laughter, and understanding of how to incorporate our new plant friends into daily life. We will be meeting at Coastal and walking a leisurely half mile (as Mischa puts it… it’s more like an herb stop and talk). Plan to bring boots in case it’s muddy!

Mischa Schuler, Community Herbalist and Owner of Wild Carrot Herbs

When: Tuesday, May 16, 5:30-7pm
