I don’t know about you but I feel like a tourist in our local forests sometimes? Trails are painted with a sea of ‘green’ during the summer? Wanna learn about your local plants and develop a deeper connection with them? I don’t mean, sit down and have a deep conversations with them..LOL but lean about the plants the benefits that it offer us.
Join Alexis Burnett, Naturalist, Tracker, Wilderness Skills Practitioner and Canoe Guide will be at the Orangeville Public Library’s Mill Street location on the evening of Thursday, March 8 at 7:00 p.m. to present a fascinating and informative introduction to edible and medicinal plants found in the wild.
I didn’t know that many wild plants are highly nutritious and have the ability to heal when harvested and prepared in the proper manner. Some are edible only during certain stages of their development. In a number of cases, one part of the a plant is edible and another is inedible or worse – poisonous!
On Thursday evening they will begin to unravel the many mysteries of the plant world. For some of us this journey may seem overwhelming, and it may seem difficult to know where to start.
So come see what many benefits and healing properties that our local flora has to offer.
Admission is free, and everyone is welcome to attend. Refreshments provided.
