Back by popular demand, our Farm to Medicine Cabinet series returns to the Farm! The farm landscapes are capable of so much more than the first meets the eye: they produce nourishing foods, but also give us powerful plant-based medicines from weeds, cover crops, ornamental gardens, forests, and backyards. This “weed walk” will introduce you to medicinal plants commonly found on different parts of Vermont’s working lands, deepen your appreciation of the local food movement, and introduce you to nature-based, local medicine as part of a resilient food system.

This program is offered in partnership with Railyard Apothecary by Urban Moonshine & Burlington Herb Clinic.
