Join botanist, herbalist and naturalist Heidy Adams on a walk at the Brattleboro Saturday market. We’ll be exploring traditional uses of the native and introduced plants growing in the field, wooded areas and down by the river. There are over 40 plants to discuss!
For all ages! Anyone interested in learning more about the uses of wild local plants are welcome.
Plant walks start at 11 a.m. and will run about an hour. We’ll meet at the information board at the east end of the market.
Attend as many or few walks as you like- I’ll be covering different plants each week.
Note: There is a fair amount of poison ivy at the market so wear good walking shoes if you can. I’ll try to bring the poison ivy to your attention as much as possible.
