Come learn about the medicinal and edible plants growing in the sidewalks, gardens, and wild lots of downtown West Asheville! This event will be happening Saturday, September 8th from 11:30 to 1:00, rain or shine. It will start at the Center for Holistic Medicine which is located at 779 Haywood Road in the heart of downtown West Asheville. The walk will be co-hosted by Nancy Hyton, Licensed Acupuncturist, Certified Herbalist, and founder of the Center, and local herbalist Mary Morgaine Thames of Earth Dancers. This walk will also be on the same day as the West Asheville Garden Stroll, a free tour of private neighborhood gardens. The cost is $5 for adults and includes a useful handout of the plants we will be talking about on the walk. Kids are free! Sign up in advance at the Center or just come by on the day of the event. You can also call us at 505-3174 or email firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll put you on the list.
