Join Megan Kendrick of Wild Medicinals on a frolic at our farm through its rolling open hills and our neighbours Headwaters Farm forests. Allow experienced herbalist Megan to guide you on an exploration of these lands and that which grows within them. Witness how plants have many growth stages through each season, consider signing up for 1 workshop per season or all 6, where you visit new plants and get to revisit them throughout each workshop! This frolic is good for the newer foragers looking to learn some of the basics along with details on beyond the basic wilds.

As the plants send their energy back into the earth we will dig deeper into our connection with the plants.
