Plant Walk Dates


Throughout the warmer months, let's get to know the medicinal and edible plants that grow all around us! On a plant walk, you can expect to learn plant identification, plant names (common and botanical latin), as well as some of the ways in which the plant can be worked with and sustainable harvesting practices. Plant walks are interactive as we will walk around local areas (parks, properties, etc.) and observe, touch, and taste the plants as we go. Each and every plant walk will be different- depending on location, time of year, and which plants we come across!

Digestion & Bitters - Tuesday, November 14th - 6:00pm-7:30pm

at The Greensted, Zumbrota

You may have heard the saying, “you are what you eat”, however it is more accurate to say, “you are what you digest”. Our digestive system- starting in our mouth and ending you know where- is crucial for optimal health. In this class, we will start by discussing the basics of the digestive system before exploring common digestive ailments such as indigestion/gassiness, acid reflux, bowel irregularity and more. In addition, you will learn about bitters as well as other considerations such as diet, lifestyle, and herbal allies specific to various conditions and the overall health of the digestive system.

Through the Darkness: Practices & Herbal Allies for the Winter -

Tuesday, December 12th - 6:00pm-7:30pm

at The Greensted, Zumbrota

Of the seasons, winter tends to be the most difficult for so many. It is common to experience some degree of heaviness and/or darkness when the season feels long with its short daylight hours, cold temperatures, and when the majority of the natural world is in a state of dormancy. This class is an invite to discover the medicine winter has to offer as well as ways we can nourish and support our bodies, minds, and hearts through this season utilizing various practices and herbal allies.
