Pick your Poison | August  3

Join us as we survey the Garden discovering the many commonly found plants that can be used medicinally and, importantly, learn which plants to avoid. Families will learn how to identify poisonous plants in all seasons, and learn what to do if they are encountered. We will brew tea from herbs gathered from the forest, make a poultice from common lawn weeds, and craft jewelweed soap.
