Herbal Harvest 2018– Spring Bloom Edition

Galiano Conservancy’s intern Yucco T attended our spring Herbal Harvest. Here are her impressions and her photographs. 

Note: We’ve just announced our Autumn Herbal Harvest. We hope you can join us. 

It was beautiful spring day.

We learned that there are so many edible plants around us, and that everything has a lot of functions.

Learning about Horse Tail

We also enjoyed tea blending, making kombucha, ginger “bug”, and aromatic vinegar and honey.

We harvested plants to make our own lunch on Sunday and it was awesome!
