Did you know there are healing plants growing in your backyard, neighborhood, and household garden? Come and learn about common and not-so-common uses of local plants. Start with a presentation to take you on a ”virtual” walk through the seasons, then go outside to discover the foods and medicinal plants of spring growing in the AFS backyard, a first-hand identification experience. Learn how to forage the plants and trees for food, teas, and healing salves, and simple home remedies for poison ivy, cuts and burns, headaches, colds and flu, and more. Enjoy herbal tea and snacks during the hands-on demonstrations. Walk away with handouts, recipes, and samples to take home and get you started on your personal backyard medicine chest.
Fee = $45 + $15 for materials.
