Can’t beat the weeds? Then eat the weeds. Join naturalist Carrie Sparks for an easy one-mile walk along the birding trail at the Settlers Museum of Southwest Virginia where we will find over 30 common plants that can be used for food, tea or medicine. Several “wild” food items and drinks will be prepared for you to sample. Bring a snack and drink and perhaps a camera. Walk is limited to 15.
