Join local herbalist and arborist Alex Klein for a walk around New England Botanic Garden at Tower Hill to discover the bounty of medicinal plants, both those grown in the garden and those sprouting up of their own accord as weeds or forest understory.

You may be surprised to find just how many useful medicinal herbs are common to our local landscape.

While on the walk we will discuss basic identification techniques so you can become familiar with some common and useful medicinal plants.

We'll also cover historic and modern uses of these herbs, the spectrum between poison, medicine, and food, how to harvest ethically and safely, and how to process and use some of these plants for home healing.
