For our April Growers' Series workshop*, join us for a 90-minute Earth Day trail walk along Boxer's Trail in East Fairmount Park. Led by Marian Dalke, Herbalist and Garden Manager for Norris Square Neighborhood Project, the workshop will teach participants how to identify and harvest various wild local herbs sustainably and respectfully. Marian will share the botanical properties of specific herbs and offer techniques for using wild herbs for food and for medicine.

*This workshop is part of the Penn State Extension Growers’ Series, a free/donation-based, monthly educational workshop series (October-May) that highlights Philadelphia-based growers implementing innovative, sustainable agricultural practices in their production spaces and their communities. Held in various locations across the city, each workshop is hosted in partnership with and led by Philadelphia-based grower(s) with support from Penn State Extension. Workshops feature a combination of formal instruction, interactive activity, and discussion and program participants are encouraged to actively contribute.
