Herbalism 101 - Edible and Medicinal Plants (Field Trip) Suggested Donation $10

Matthew Robbins will conduct a field trip to 5100 Meadowside Ln Rockville, Maryland 20853. He has extensive knowledge of Herbal, edible and medicinal plants. This will be a great way to spend some time in nature and enjoy the good weather and learn via hands-on approach.

We will meet at noon in the parking lot at the address above. Everyone should bring some water, gloves (if they would like to touch the plants), whatever clothing they feel is necessary (it will be warm with a small chance of rain), bug repellent, perhaps sun screen, a camera would be helpful, and a notepad with a pen/pencil.
The walk will be about a mile (it is an easy trek); there might be some mud and mildly, rough terrain (roots, puddles, etc).

Matthew will point out several edible and medicinal plants, and cover some Herbalism 101. At the end of the walk, we will backtrack a little and meditate for a short period. Meditation is optional.

    Good morning All,

    I will be placing an order for dropper-top bottles soon (1 ounce and 2 ounce) via SKS Bottle, and wanted to know if anyone want in on the order. The bottles cost a little less than a dollar when we order them in bulk.

      If you're going to tai chi on Sunday I can pay you there. Also, can you suggest some good tincture recipes?

      I will not be at Tai Chi Sunday, I will be in CT. Shoot me an email, [masked], and let me know what tinctures you are looking into and for what purpose. I will provide recipes.

    Nice little field trip. I learn a lot from Matt about the medicinal values of many ordinary looking plants.

    This was a great event. Nature center was beautiful and the weather was perfect. Matt showed us so many plants and explained their medicinal values. I learned a lot from this field trip. Thank you to all who joined us and for contributing to a wonderful energy.
