WILD FOOD & MEDICINE WALK - Wainwright House, Rye, NY - August 21st, 2:00 - 4:00pm
Come delight in the discovery that wild food and herbal medicine is all around us wherever we live.
Enjoy an uplifting and sensory educational experience identifying, sniffing, and tasting the wild local plants that are often dismissed as mere weeds. The plants you likely spend hours pulling out of your garden may become your new best friends when you discover that plantain stops the itch of a mosquito bite, dandelion leaves strengthen kidneys and ease blood pressure, and violets are rich in salicylic acid and can reduce headache pain! Nature is a marvelous teacher and ally and I have been leading people on “weed walks” for 30 years. This will be a relaxing stroll through lawn and gardens of the exquisite grounds of Wainright House, and it's fun for all ages!
