Florida Native Plants Nursery & Landscaping presents Edible and Medicinal Plant Walk with Caitlin McMullen

Have you ever wondered what the plants around you are? Whether they are food or medicine to us? Come walk amidst the lush greenery of the Florida Native Plant Nursery and meet some of our local plants along with herbalist Caitlin McMullen. We’ll touch on some of the most common plants around us that we can connect with in many ways to improve our physical health as well as our connection to the ecosystems around us.

Cost: $10 per person, Kids 12 and under are free.

Space limited! Pre-registration required by 5pm, October 18 (click "Tickets" or "Registration" button).

Bring a sun hat, non-DEET natural bugspray, a water bottle, and if you like, a notebook, pen and camera for note taking. The walk should last an hour and a half. Parking is limited, so carpool if possible. Many of the plants we’ll meet are also available for purchase through the Nursery, so if you’d like to get to know some of them better, you can take them home to your garden or container garden.

Caitlin McMullen is a lifelong plant lover, and a dedicated friend and student of the plants. She is a mother, herbalist and gardener and the woman behind Magnolia and Pine, a small batch, seasonal, locally sourced (mostly homegrown) herbal apothecary and herbal CSA.

Hosted by Presenting Partner, Florida Native Plants Nursery & Landscaping!
