In the Dooryard: Essential Weeds at Our Feet — Presentation & salve-making workshop

November 18, 2017 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

The edges of our paths, gardens, and lawns are home to resilient plants…weeds like dandelion, plantain, violets, and others are often rogued out, though they have traditional uses as food and medicinal remedies.

This presentation weaves together the ecology of common native and non-native plants with their modern and historical uses as food and medicinal remedies. Learn which common weeds are high in healthy fats, and where to find the plant called “nature’s bandage”.

The presentation will be followed by a salve-making workshop. All participants will bring home a salve.

Materials included in class fee.
