Plant Walk | Wild Weedy Medicinals
Join herbalist Jessy Delleman on this plant walk featuring wild medicinal weeds of our farms, fields, ditches, and roadsides. These by-donation plants walks are casual and unstructured and make room for the student to engage in a personal way. At the same time they delve deep and are jammed packed full of useful information and connecting experiences. Please dress appropriately for the weather and wear sturdy footwear. Don't forget to bring a note book and pen as you may wish to take notes!
Weeds are introduced non-native plants that have naturalized and proliferated in our local gardens, roadsides, disturbed areas, wilds and other natural areas. Often considered a nuisance or detrimental to our ecosystem, we will look at weeds from a different perspective on this walk, honouring them for their great medicinal virtues.
Some of the wild medicinal weeds we may have the pleasure to meet and learn more about include:
