E2106 – Edible Wild Plants

with Suzanne Carlisle

Free Waiting List
Registration unavailable

Learn about plants that are good for salad or for snack munching.  And they can be found in common everyday places.   Some plants may be thought of as medicinal in folklore or alternative medicine and Suzanne will discuss these but won’t be making any diagnoses!  The walking is easy and slow and there is plenty of time for questions. 

                       (Rain Date:  Friday, July 23rd   10:00 to 11:30 AM)
