Join ethnobiologist and functional herbalist Hayden Stebbins for a walk through forest and field at Millstone Farm to see the world in a way you’ve never seen before. During this walk, Hayden will teach you about common introduced and native plants, how to identify them by family, and their edible, medicinal, or poisonous properties. We will harvest edible plants as we go and bring them to the kitchen where you and the group will prepare a multicourse meal combining the harvest with regular food. 

Enrollment is limited! Cost of registration is $40 per attendee. (If cost is prohibitive please contact affarrell@millstonefarm.org, we want all to be able to participate!)

WHAT TO BRING
If you would like to take notes (there will be a lot of information shared), bring a notepad and pen. Wear appropriate clothing for a relaxed walk and weather, but most importantly, bring a big appetite and a curious mind! Please also be sure to fill out our online waiver form before arrival. 

WHAT WILL WE EAT? 
The meal will include a wild plant pesto, hummus, a couple teas and an extra dish depending on what plants and mushrooms are found.
