Know Your (Leafy) Neighbors: Connecting with the Earth and Useful Plants

 After months of COVID lockdown and isolation, you may be longing for fresh air and connection with nature and the earth. You don’t have to travel miles away to a special location or tramp into the deep woods to find this connection; it is available right in your backyard or garden, local park or nature trail! Knowing more about the plants that are underfoot, around you everywhere–your “leafy neighbors”–brings you into connection with nature on a real and immediate level, available every day, simply and easily.blooming ground ivy with rain on it

Knowing more about the plants around you, even the weeds!, what they have been used for, and how they can add their health benefits to your life, brings nature into your life organically, weaving itself into your daily life and routines.

Come on a walk in your backyard, your garden, or a local park or trail to learn about foraging, wild-crafting, and the hidden benefits of weeds,  your garden herbs, and trees, and more.

The fee is $100.00 for 1 to 3 people, each additional person is $25 each. Families talk to me about a family rate.
