Take a stroll around the Audubon Nature Center with Chinese Medicine Extraordinaire Bob Linde, and learn about many edible and medicinal plants that grow in our landscapes. We will walk the property and learn about all sorts of plants that grow naturally in our area, many of which are considered weeds. Bob will take you on an adventure to identify safe and easy-to-identify plants that can be used in every home while telling anecdotal stories along the way.
Space limited to 30 participants.
Cost: $10 for general public, $5 for students and Transition Sarasota members. If you pre-register as well for Bob Linde's workshop, "Growing and Using Medicinal and Edible Herbs in Florida" (same location following this walk), you get $5 off that workshop’s price!
