Wild Edibles & Medicinals Plant Walk with Jade Alicandro Mace
Join us for a walk around the grounds exploring our bioregionally abundant wild edible and medicinal trees, shrubs, flowers, roots, berries, and more! We’ll focus on field botany and plant ID, common medicinal uses, edibility and recipes, medicine-making, wildcrafting and harvesting practices, and practical tips for weaving the use of these plants into our every-day lives.
