I am opening up my gardens this year to the public who want to learn how to use weeds as
food and medicine. My gardening days are erratic and is dictated by when Nature says its time.
Though you can see estimate dates below. We work the gardens rain or shine. We start early.
Please plan to arrive no later than 9:00. Bring your own garden gloves if you like to use them,
if you have a favorite pad to kneel on when working in the soil or a favorite shovel ... but that's
not necessary if you don't as we have plenty here.

Definitely bring your own water bottle and lunch. I'll provide snacks and hands on education.

Garden / Harvest Times: if you would like to learn how to care for the land and at the same time
learn how to work with plants for whole wellness, below are what we will be doing each month.
Please call ahead of time to see if Nature is calling us to work with plants or gardens or both.
