Nicole Telkes, of Wildflower School of Botanical Medicine, presents Medicinal Plant Wildscaping, with a book signing! What if many of the native plants – and even weeds – in our yard could be tonics and teas for our health and well being? Well, many are! Please join Nicole Telkes as we meander around the back yard of the Natural Gardener, learning from her the edible and medicinal plants here on the property. We’ll also learn how we can identify and create our own native and weedy wildscape for food and medicine.
