GreenThumb Events & Workshops

Weeds and Herbs Walk

Wednesday, April 24, 2019

6:00 p.m.7:30 p.m.

Facilitated by Jess Turner

Dandelion, burdock, violet leaf, and ground ivy: just a few of the plants we’ve all encountered growing in our school and community gardens in between the rows of neatly cultivated tomatoes, carrots, and brassicas. Unwelcome as they may seem, these plants have been valued for centuries as medicines and sources of wild food.

In this workshop, we will develop our plant identification skills and an appreciation of the healing plants — often discarded as mere weeds — that grow abundantly all over our city.

Please RSVP on Eventbrite.

Este taller se ofrecerá con traducción al español.
