Monthly Plant Walks

May 11 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

The purpose of these wild edible walks is to bring awareness to the healing and magic in this region, that might otherwise be overlooked… bypassed altogether.  But healing and magic are right here at our fingertips and feet!

It is my sincere wish to open the eyes of others who may have forgotten (or who feel disconnected from nature) just how fortunate we are to be living in this part of the country.  We have a very diverse ecosystem all around us, if we would only slow down to notice.  We need not become invasive and destructive in order to survive and evolve.  We must educate ourselves to become as harmonious with our environment as possible.  We will not regret it, and the Earth will always respond.

Should you choose to join me, I will share with you the secret lives of the woodland flora and fauna; the dance between the Sun, Moon, Planets, and Stars;  the laugh of the waters; and the incredible, infinite love of what the Native Americans refer to as the Great Spirit.  The classes that I offer are geared not only toward discovering the local plant life of the area, but connecting with it, honoring it, and working symbiotically with the environment, for optimal healing within ourselves and within the ecosystem so many of us call Home.

 

You must let me know if you plan to attend any of these walks by 48 hours prior! If I do not hear from anybody, I will not show up! Drop-in at your own risk!

Contact me at BlueHeronNatureSkills@gmail.com to reserve your spot!

Plan to dress for the weather! We will not walk if there is a steady/hard rain or thunderstorms. Days of high wind will be cause for cancellation as well (the winds these days are BRUTAL!)

I will be in touch if there are any cancellations.

These walks are donation-based! If you do not have anything to donate, your smile will suffice! All monetary donations are recorded, and 10% of the total amount is donated to the United Plant Savers. I will also match the uPs donation and donate to another awesome, worthy cause! For 2018 I matched (and rounded up) to support the Free Fire Cider cause.

We meet at the big round table (at the front entrance of Bedner’s) and then make our way to our plant walk site!
