Open to all, this class is a also a precursor to our fall herb series: "Nature's Remedies", offered on 3 Saturday afternoons, starting Sept 16th. On this evening, we’ll walk the grounds of the Boston Food Forest, identify and discuss the healing properties of the plants we find thriving. I’ll also spend a little time discussing proper harvesting of flowers, leaves, roots and berries. There’ll be a handout on these topics, as well as some delicious, local herbal tea for you to try. Geared for adults, but school-age children accompanied by a parent are welcome. TEACHER: Su Cousineau (Nature’s Remedies Series) Sliding scale suggested donation: $10 - $50.
