Edible and Medicinal Plant Walk

Come out and discover the incredible uses of our Flora, and enjoy a relaxing afternoon at the park! We will be walking slowly, stopping to observe the plants that grow naturally in our environment, including European and Native species, and learning about how to use them in our daily lives. You will be amazed at how useful and abundant our Flora is! These plants not only have incredible culinary qualities, but they are super-foods as well! Not to mention the fact that they can help you save on your grocery bill… The best way to learn to recognize plants is to see them several times during their growing season. Come out and experience these unique and useful workshops – you won’t regret it!

Note: This workshop is being led by Sarah Murray, who has taught the edible and medicinal uses of plants in Europe and the US for the past 30 years. Her former husband, François Couplan, is the author of the Encyclopedia of the Edible Plants of North America. She was one of the first women in Europe (1980's) to lead "soft" survival trips, where wild plants made up 100% of the harvest (no animals) in week-long and 2-week-long treks into nature.

Bring: A notebook and pen, camera, or however you can best take notes, and some water (and a snack, if needed). Dress accordingly for weather. Fees: $30 for adults, $15 for kids 12 and up, free for little ones. Contact: Sarah Murray (302)[masked] or email [masked]. See also www.purehealinginsight.com.

      Since the weather will be wet and I'm using a cane, I think I'll pass this time.

    Just so everyone knows, Delaware State Parks are not free - they ask for a fee, $6 per car out-of-state, and $3 for Delaware license plates, unless you have a park sticker. We will be meeting at the parking lot at the bottom of Rockland Rd., near Adams Dam Rd. If that one is full, there is another one close by. See you on Saturday!
