Herb Walks - Take a Walk on the Wild Side
Without our help, Nature fills her garden with an abundance of wild herbs. Susan offers guided walks that reveal the many useful, edible and medicinal plants that grow wild in your area. Students will learn to identify several local varieties and discover the history, folklore, and practical uses in food, as medicine and for body and home care.
Susan is available for group and private herb walks. Explore the plant kingdom in local parks and mountain trails or see what is growing on your own property.
Contact Susan today to schedule an herb walk or visit the Upcoming Classes page for upcoming treks.
