Know Your Edible Plants Field Program

July 28, 3 pm – 5 pm

Expand your appetite for nature tasting wild edible plants and learn to recognize the abundance of useful interesting, nourishing, or medicinal plants all around us. Carol Felice will lead participants on an exploration of Tin Mountain’s Rockwell Sanctuary to smell, taste, compare color and reflectivity, and listen for the sound of our fingers on textures and see how a plant might dance with the wind. Plants you meet here at Tin Mountain may also be found around your own home. Plant lists will be provided, but feel free to bring a small notebook or camera to help you remember all you learn.

Program fee: $15/person or $25/household for non-members; Members: Free
