The Herbal Clinic is teaming up with our friends at The P.I.N.E. Project for an integrative herb walk in beautiful High Park, facilitated by Clinical and Folk herbalists and nature connection mentors Emma Downie and Nikki Satira.
On Sunday July 16th from 10am — 2pm you will get a chance to meet many of our local plant species and learn their traditional and modern day applications and identifying features. We will be well-equipped with field guides and medicinal tinctures to taste along the way — hope to see you there!
The walk is a $20 suggested fee or pay what you can. To register, please etransfer your payment of choice to [email protected]
by Friday, July 14th to secure your spot. Spots are limited so be sure to sign up as soon as possible if you'd like to be part of this wonderful opportunity to get outside and learn about our local plants and herbal medicine!
