    Wild Healing Plant Walk

    Posted by Heather on 20th Sep 2021

    Dawn was fantastic! I got a bee sting just as we were all getting started and she rushed in the field, gathered some plantain, directed me in how to prepared it and it really helped! I was able to just continue on without any real pain or discomfort! Dawn was informed and funny and ready at the drop of the hat to show you just what these plants can do!

    I had a great time and learned so much. I can now go to a park or wild setting knowing that all the weed-looking plants are actually healing plants to be respected and honored. Thank you.

    Pleasant and informative

    The Weed Walk in Prospect Park was both pleasant and informative. I learned a lot more than I expected in the two hours there. The guide provided as much information as possible and covered a good portion of the park. My only regret was that it wasn't longer as I could have stayed all day in the park to learn about plants.
