As part of our “Woods Walk” Seminar Series, this year’s summer edition will focus on teaching participants the techniques to accurately identify the edible and medicinal wild plants and mushrooms that grow in our area during the summer months. Matthias and Andrea Reisen from Healing Spirits will be focusing on the plants, while Steve Galbreth from Willow Harvest Organics will be your mushroom guide. We will meet at Healing Spirits Herb Farm in Wallace, NY, and carpool from there to a nearby area of woods along the beautiful FingerLakes Trail for our hike. Participants are encouraged to bring a camera and small notepad to document our finds and key identifying characteristics. We also recommend that you bring water and maybe a snack for the hike, as we will likely be in the woods for a couple of hours. Even though we will hope for a cool breezy afternoon, please dress appropriately as it will likely be warm, and there may be a few hungry mosquitoes around. After the hike, we will return to Healing Spirits for refreshments and a final question and answer session.
