evening herb walks
at Tenhave Woods
(spring, fall & winter)

& Meininger Park

in royal oak, michigan


with herbalist jim mcdonald



Many of the herb walks I do are daylong affairs, often on weekends.  I understand that this makes coming difficult for some people due to work or family schedules.  Enter the evening herb walk series.  This spring, summer and fall, join me and spend a few hours looking at plants in at Tenhave Woods in Royal Oak, MI (on Normandy between Main/Livernois and Crooks)...

On our walk we'll be wandering around the beautiful Tenhave Woods to explore the medicinal virtues, identification, folklore and preparation of many of the common "weeds" and wildflowers we pass by every day. The information presented will be both specific and practical, based on jim's twenty plus years experience in gathering, preparing, and using herbal remedies, and provide a basis for participants to incorporate what they have learned into usable skills with which to maintain and restore health.
At each walk we'll look at the herbs that are in their prime at the moment, which will vary from season to season.  Please note that evening herb walks (especially in the fall) sometimes flirt with darkness, so bring along a flashlight to keep you illuminated...
