Please join us for a free talk at the Madison Area Permaculture Guild’s Education Herb Garden on Monday May 22nd from 6:00-7:30pm
Herb talks are the 2nd and 4th Mondays of the month thru September.
Invasive Plants as Medicine
Many of our invasive plants were intentionally brought here because early immigrants couldn’t imagine life without them. Throughout time much of this common knowledge was lost to most and these plants are looked upon with disdain. Your local herbalists know how valuable these plants are for our health and everyday healing. We will talk about changing local ecology and how our relationships with plants, either love or hate, affect us. Plants like creeping charlie, plantain, bramble berries and garlic mustard will be covered. We will work with the plants tasting and trying out some of their uses as poultices, food and tinctures. Herbalist, Day Host-Jablonski, will lead this weedy talk.
Please bring garden gloves and a small spade with you if you have them. Make sure your spade is clean before you come. If you would like to take plants home, bring a bag or container for them.
Donations are not required but much appreciated to help us maintain the herb garden, add more plants and have project materials for our talks.
Garden location at 3919 Gray Road DeForest, just 2 miles outside of Madison.
