Event Navigation

Join clinical herbalist and community educator Mel Kasting, RH (AHG) for an exploratory botanical experience walking the ridge of Rock Castle Gorge. In the first part of the hike, we will learn to identify a handful of medicinal and edible plants along the trail and chat about how to harvest, prepare and use those herbs. In the second part of the hike, we will choose one plant each and spend some time learning simple somatic practices to bring our plant connections home with us.
There is a maximum of 12 participants and registration is required.
