Stinging Nettles

Join naturalist, herbalist, and registered dietitian Melanie Putz Brotz for a wild plant treasure hunt in the Intervale. There are so many amazing edible and medicinal plants growing in this region; come join the adventure. Participants in this workshop traditionally uncover many delectable surprises, like stinging nettles, burdock root, lambs quarters, yellow dock, wild violets, Japanese knotweed, wild grapes and invasively prolific and delicious garlic mustard greens. Meet at the small parking lot on Intervale Road, on the right after the dirt road begins, by the entrance to the Rena Calkins Trail. This walk will take place rain or shine, unless the weather is severe.
