Native Plant Walk with Gabe Garms

May 6, 2018


Gabe Garms, Native Plant Walk

MAY 6, 10 AM—12 PM. Donations welcome. email info@whidbeyinstitute.org to RSVP.

We will learn all about the native plants growing in a few different ecologies at the property. We’ll cover identification and which plants are good for food, medicine, tools and attracting wildlife. We’ll also look at patterns in the plant communities that can be used in our gardens at home. When you’re able to mimic natural patterns, and work with nature instead of against her, your gardens will become more productive with significantly less work. You won’t want to miss this walk.

Gabe is the co-founder and an instructor at Raven’s Roots Naturalist School in Sedro, Woolley, WA (www.ravensroots.com). He teaches ethnobotany, permaculture and wilderness survival and manages the Raven’s Roots farm.

Departs from Lower Parking Lot trailhead.
