Medicinal and Edible Plant Walk

Come learn about the many common edible and medicinal wild plants growing right in your neighborhood! Herbalist and nutritionist Corrie Rabbe from Radical Health will identify and teach about local and sustainable plant medicine and food in the beautiful Riverain Park. She will share tips and recipes for the safe use of wild plants. 


From the Adàwe Crossing, we will head south, meandering through the park and stopping often throughout. We will do a loop, heading back north towards the Adàwe bridge where the walk will finish. 

The route is flat, but we will be walking across the grass. If conditions are wet, it may be muddy, which will make it difficult for some. Please dress for the weather and wear sturdy shoes!
