Come learn about medicinal plants that are growing right in our backyard!

Herb walks are a great way to get people out to experience the health benefits of being outside, connecting with nature, and engaging with and learning about the medicinal plants that grow locally in our community.

Herb walks generally involve spending time outside learning about and connecting with the natural landscapes, ecosystems plants and trees growing all around us.

Herb walks can be held at any time throughout the year for people of all ages and stages of life. Walking is not always necessary.

If you are interested in hearing about future herb walks – sign up for our free clinic newsletter or our herb walk list.

Herb walks can involve:

  • learning how to connect with the plants around us
  • learning about different medicinal plants that grow locally
  • learning about how plants change throughout the growing season or even from year to year
  • learning how the landscape can influence what grows where
  • learning about different types of herbal medicines
  • learning how trees, other plants, and herbal remedies can help us in our daily lives and potentially even with health challenges
  • experiencing the health benefits of spending time in nature
