Wild Medicinal Plant Identification

This early spring walk will introduce participants to some of the common medicinal plants we have in the RI area. Harvesting, processing, how to use both medicinally and as wild food (if appropriate) will be discussed. Your guide will be Susan Clements, herbalist and former owner of The Herb Wyfe in Wickford, who will share 25 years of experience in the field with the group. Please wear appropriate clothing and shoes. There is a $10 fee for this Meetup. Looking forward to sharing a lovely spring morning with you in the woods, trails and fields!

    My apologies for such a late notice: I will not be able to attend as I've herniated a disc in my back and am having trouble. I hope anyone waiting can make use of my spot!

    Hello everyone! We will meet tomorrow morning in Ryan Park in North Kingstown. Please use entrance on Oak Hill Rd. which is well marked with a big sign. Shortly after you enter you will see "Additonlal Parking Sign" on the right. Bear left on paved road, watch for next Additional Parking sign on on left, where right after this road will become dirt. Bear right and proceed to parking lot up a bit on right. I will post Meetup sign. You can't get lost in park, but if you do,[masked]-4297. The plants and I are so looking forward to sharing this time with you!

    I can't make it, but would you like to have a table at an eco fair to promote wild medicinal plant identification or any herbs?

    April 8, 2013

    • Susan

      Can you tell me more about this event via private message?

    I'm hoping to come but am not 100%. Is the terrain easy to walk on? I'm still recovering from a sprained ankle. Thanks!

    April 8, 2013

    • Susan

      Terrain is flat. Not certain how far we will be walking. A lot of that will be determined by number of plants we will see in one area. We could, however, spend a lot of time standing.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
