Wild Weeds Plant Walk at Mead Garden with Debbie Krause

September 25 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

$25
Join us for a walk in the wilds of Central Florida to discover medicinal and edible plants that are growing all around us. Get to know the plants in our ecosystems and explore their ethnobotanical uses! Along the hike, edible plants and trees are taught as we meander through the park. There will be a discussion about the plant/shrub/tree; whether edible or medicinal, other uses and how to identify. This is a hands-on course where tasting, smelling and feeling is important. It is taught in a fun and practical way to make the experience educational and enjoyable. The hike is easy and level with several stops along the way. Well-behaved children are welcome as students. Most hikes cover 15-20 different species and vary depending on the season of the year. During the hike we will cross through different ecosystems, so you can get a feel for the diversity of Florida’s landscape.
Be sure to bring your water bottle, your favorite note-taking tools and mask (if you choose to wear one).
Tuition: $25
Early Bird Rate: $20, good through 9/4/22
