I-TAL Acres Know Your Weeds: A Mindful Medicinal Plant ID Walk

May 19 @ 2:00 pm 4:00 pm


Most people can easily identify 100’s of corporate logos, but not 10 plants in their own bio-region.  Time to reconnect and rebuild our relationship with the natural world, get to know the plants and trees around you.  Say ‘hello’ and ‘thank you’, ask permission to harvest, be mindful of our interdependence. Join Ed & Maya Skopal at I-TAL Acres Medicinal Herb Farm & Apothecary for stories, laughs, and a mindful walk of our woodlands, grasslands, and cultivated gardens pointing out various herbs/plants/trees and their medicinal folk uses. This walk will focus on weeds and their medicinal uses

Information sheet handout and emailed e-book included! Please bring sunscreen, sunglasses, hat, water bottle, and open hearts and minds : )
