Join Dan Farella of Return to Nature for an insightful walk around the beautiful Medicine Wheel land to demystify the “wall of green” surrounding us. He will share with you you to identify and work with many plants revered in the herbal traditions for healing ailments, as well as how to forage for nutritious wild food directly from the land. Dan will guide two plant walks, one Saturday May 17th and one Sunday May 18th, both from 2pm-4pm.
We will sample the wild plant wonders Nature guides us to, and focus on methods to work with and prepare them. Gain the skills and confidence necessary to utilize and work with the countless organic, fresh, local and free plant resources Nature continually provides.
Please bring a camera and notebook for recording the plants we find.
