June....more plants.....bigger plants! How quickly they change in the growing season. When we did our May 3 walk, many were quite young, and some had not even yet appeared. What a difference six weeks will make! Medicinal uses, how to harvest, edible properties (if appropriate) will be touched on. This walk will be in Ryan Park again, but coming in from a different entrance. There is a $10 fee for this walk.
The entrance we will use is located on LAFAYETTE RD. in North Kingstown. You will take the Rt 102/Wickford exit off of RT 4, heading toward Wickford. Lafayette Rd. Is off of RT 102, less than a mile from this exit. There is plenty of parking at this entrance. When turning on to Lafayette Rd from RT 102, also known as TEN ROD RD, entrance to park is right ahead on left.
