About the Event:
Join herbalist and farmer AC Stauble, The Traveling Herb Farmer, for a plant walk and educational experience about the wonders and healing benefits of the plants that you can find in the Northeast.
This event is hosted by the amazing folks at Weathertop Farmacy, a well stocked gift shop, apothecary and herb shop located at their new location in Cherry Valley at 6 Main Street.
At 12pm, Sunday July 30th we will meet at Weathertop Farmacy to gather our group, and enjoy taking in the sites of the shop. Then at 12:15 we will set out on our walk to the bench across the street and walk around town.
AC will point out and discuss some of the plants and get in to the medicinal uses of a few of our most common wild weeds and show the things that are edible. In the area AC has noticed lots of medicinal plants such as comfrey, yarrow, plantain, angelica, goldenrod, roses, and more. We will see what we find together and end around 2pm back where we started.
Register for a sliding scale of $13-$30.00 here on this event page if you'd like to join.
