Plant Walks with Bev Axelsen: Thursday evenings and Saturday mornings
Edible medicinal plants are everywhere, local, free, abundant and they can be a sustainable source of plants for healing.

(To allow more students to participate, the same information will be presented during each Saturday morning walk as in that week’s Thursday evening walk. If you are interested in multiple walks, please feel free to mix and match.)
When: Thursday evenings, 6-8p except in October: June 23, 2016, July 28, September 1 (rescheduled from August 25), September 22, October 13 (4-6p)

Price: $20 per walk 

Location: Deep Creek Trailhead (contact us for directions)
We will identify 10 to 20 wild medicinal plants growing in the proximity of the trailhead … some hiking required. The purpose of the class will be identification of plants; followed by observation and study of their cycles of growth, medicinal qualities, flowering, seed production and moving into dormancy.
