Join us for a walk in the wilds of Central Florida to learn to identify edible, medicinal, and useful plants growing wild in the Orlando area. For the month of October, Annie will be facilitating weekly weed walks. Each walk will cover different plants, their identification patterns, along with current and historical uses. The classes will last 2 hours and we will end each session with a taste of wild herbal tea! Come to 4 walks and get the 5th FREE! Attending the whole series will give you a well-rounded education on interacting with our local plant friends. Come and take a lichen to the plants!
