Know Your Weeds: A Mindful Medicinal Plant ID Walk

May 19 : 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Most people can easily identify 100’s of corporate logos, but not 10 plants in their own bio-region.  Time to reconnect and rebuild our relationship with the natural world, get to know the plants and trees around you.  . Say ‘hello’ and ‘thank you’, ask permission to harvest, be mindful of our interdependence.  Join Ed & Maya Skopal at I-TAL Acres Medicinal Herb Farm & Apothecary for stories, laughs, and a mindful walk of our woodlands, grasslands, and cultivated gardens pointing out various herbs/plants/trees and their medicinal folk uses. This walk will focus on weeds and their medicinal uses

Information sheet handout and emailed e-book included! Please bring sunscreen, sunglasses, hat, water bottle, and open hearts and minds : )
