A Summer Weed Walk
A Workshop and (weather permitting) Walkabout with author Susun Weed
Join us for an afternoon of hands-on help for a healthy summer as we walk and talk with herbalist and green witch, Susun Weed, author of New Menopausal Years the Wise Woman Way, Healing Wise and Down There: Sexual and Reproductive Health the Wise Woman Way. Together we will choose from a basket brimming with possibilities: we’ll identify the medicinal and edible plants around us and find those that act as sunscreens, bite soothers, insect repellants, muscle-ache soothers, itch relievers and much more. If Mother Earth chooses to rain that day, we’ll still have a blast! Susun will take us on an equally exhilarating trip indoors, leading us on a trance journey to the realms of the fairies and devas. Learn how to use herbs simply and safely, and discover green blessings in many guises. Bring your questions and curiosity.

Cost: $25 if registered and prepaid by June 14th; $30 if registering after the 14th.
