This event is part of “Reclaim, Rebuild, Reskill: a Series on Growing Your Resiliency”.
Join us before the Lorin Station crop swap for a talk with herbalist Tellur Fenner. He’ll give us an overview of the diverse array of both edible and medicinal plants found growing within our Bay Area micro-climates. Historical and modern medicinal applications will be touched upon, along with any edible and/or utilitarian potential. Tips on basic plant identification will be offered, with an emphasis on how to differentiate poisonous look-alike plants from their beneficial counterparts. Plant family characteristics will be discussed as well. Bring medicinal herbs you are growing to share and discuss.
The Lorin Station Crop Swap provides a fun opportunity to exchange fruits and vegetables from your garden with fellow community members, a chance to participate in the growing food movement and a way to connect with other local gardeners. The crop swap happens from 1-2pm and the Herbal Talk is from 12noon -1pm.
Location: Lorin Station Greenspace, Alcatraz and Adeline, Berkeley.
