Soft, pale greens scatter the landscape in Spring but wait a little longer and you will get the deep, lush greens of Summer. This is the time the hardier plants for your health make their appearance. Following along the seasons you will see new plants come calling. Look around and you will see the plant allies of Summer.
In this two hour workshop you will walk around the Farm and Woods with our local Herbalist, Robyn, and learn the basics of foraging, how and when, the health benefits of the plants and how to use them. You will leave with an understanding of foraging and how to connect with the Earth. You will also learn how to make an Electrolyte drink to keep you hydrated through the hot summer months.
