Edible and Medicinal Plant Walk ($15)

Come out and discover the incredible uses of our Flora, and enjoy a relaxing afternoon in Nature! We will be walking slowly, stopping to observe the plants that grow naturally in our environment, including introduced 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: $15 for adults, $5 for kids 12 and up, free for little ones. Contact: Sarah Murray (302)[masked] or email [masked]. See also www.purehealinginsight.com.

    2 people are coming from Downingtown to Cochranville - if anyone is close to that trajectory, they still have 2 spaces in their car! Thanks ~

    Looks like tomorrow is going to be a scorcher! Please wear hats and bring water! I will have a jug of iced herbal tea, and we will stay mostly under the trees. See you all tomorrow!

    Hello All! If any of you happen to live close to each other, we would appreciate car-pooling! There is limited parking at the farm, so it would be good to come in as few vehicles as possible. If you need me to coordinate this, please message me with your locations, and I can put people in touch. Thanks for your cooperation!
