FREE HERB WALK IN BERKELEY!
Saturday, October 8th, 2022 from 2:30-3:30 at Strawberry Creek Park
Whether you can barely identify a dandelion or know your lavender varieties like the back of your hand, this herb walk is for you! Led by clinical herbalist and educator Alessandra Jones, we will identify and discuss several plants growing in and around Strawberry Creek Park. Alessandra will share botanical identification cues, ethical harvesting information, and both traditional and current uses of the plants to support holistic wellness.
We will meet in the grass in front of the Berkeley Herbal Center and begin our walk promptly at 2:30. There is an herbal medicine fair hosted by the Berkeley Herbal Center that is open from 11:00-5:00, so look for outdoor booths and you will find me behind them in the park!
