Wild Edibles & Healthy Plants – Walk & Talk with Laurel Hobden & Annie Wamke
Laurel Hobden is one of our favorite go-to people when we need advice or herbal medicinal support. That’s the reason Annie invited her to share her wealth of knowledge, and her love the earth on a walk and talk at Blue Rock Station.
We will walk the land at Blue Rock Station to discover what’s growing, discuss foraging & plants with significant health benefits. We will enjoy herbal tea & a foraged salad at the end of our adventure.
Laurel Hobden’s herbal path began when she was diagnosed with breast cancer over 30 years ago. She opted to do a medicinal plant approach instead of chemotherapy. Laurel has shared her herbal knowledge giving presentations at the Zanesville Metropolitan Library & Blue Rock Station. Last year her urban gardens, where she grows over 30 “medicinal” plants, were featured on Simply Living’s Sustainable Columbus Living & Garden Tour.
What you’ll learn:
- How to identify at least five important herbal plants to promote health.
- How to use the five plants in a variety of ways to support health and wellness.
- How to forage for plants.
- How to make a basic herbal tea.
- How to make a foraged salad.
What to bring:
Sturdy close-toed shoes, an Easter-type basket for foraging (don’t worry we have plenty if you don’t have one), and something from your ancestors or land to share. Don’t forget your good mood.
No smoking, drinking or drugging (cussing as always is expected every once in awhile).
Everyone participating MUST be vaccinated. The goal is to make sure we have fun with no one harmed in the process.
Cost: $35 includes meal, instruction
