Wild Edibles and Spring Medicinal Tonics

Healing medicine surrounds us…and is often growing underfoot! Learn to identify common wild edible and medicinal plants as we walk the landscape of Awbury Arboretum. We’ll discuss common edible plants like dandelion, burdock, cleavers, chickweed, yellow dock, and nettles, share samples and recipes, and discuss herbal preparations to support wellness throughout the spring – including support for common seasonal ills like allergies, sluggish digestion, and exhaustion. We’ll learn how to make nourishing herbal infusions and infused herbal vinegars with mineral rich plants to jump start spring!

This class is offered on two different dates, April 2nd or April 15th.
