The removal of invasive plants from your garden doesn’t have to be an entirely destructive enterprise. Learn the medicinal uses of these invaders, and how they can be part of a more responsible approach to harvesting medicinal plants in the wild. Rachelan Griffin discusses endangered and threatened native medicinal plants, responsible wildcrafting practices, and cultivation of these important but rapidly disappearing native herbal powerhouses. The lecture will be followed by a walk in the gardens, so please dress for the weather.

This program takes place in-person (at Mt. Cuba Center) Saturday, September 24 (Rain Date: Saturday, October 1)
