About this event

In spring, we can find many medicinal herbs, nutritious plants, trees, and even some edible mushrooms around us. Come learn about these seasonal items as well as plants, trees, and mushrooms that can be foraged at other times of the year. I will teach you how to identify the plants safely, methods of preparation and preservation, nutritional and medicinal value. Bring a camera and/or notebook so you can document our finds, collection bags (plastic), and a knife or shears. We will observe current COVID-19 Outdoor Education Protocol. For ages 6 to Adult- ages 6-12 are $10 at the door with ticket-holding Adult. Wear comfortable walking shoes or boots as the terrain may be uneven or muddy. Insect spray and sunscreen are recommended. I will have my Poison Ivy-Neutralizing Wild Herbal First Aid Salve, Wildflower Jelly, Mushroom Tincture, Wild Elderberry Syrup, and other things I make from the wild for sale before and after class. Portion of proceeds will benefit Waters Farm Preservation, help preserve this beautiful historic farm and forest! Directions: Put 53 Waters Rd, Sutton, MA into your GPS, it will take you a tiny bit too far so when you get close watch for the sign post just before the big green field on the left that says, “House, Darling Barn”, etc. Turn left at the signpost and go down the long dirt road. Class will start at the Darling Barn which is the big brown barn behind the field. Park in lot . If your GPS takes you to the red Waters farmhouse you've only gone a little too far, turn around, pass the field and turn down the dirt drive- you will see the big brown wooden barn behind the field from the road.
