Can’t beat the weeds? Then eat the weeds! Join Carrie Sparks for an easy one-mile walk along the birding trail at the Settlers Museum of Southwest Virginia to discover 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, drink, and perhaps a camera.

Walk is limited to 15 participants. To register, email Carrie Sparks at jim2carrie@embarqmail.com or call 276-783-2125. Settlers Museum (2 miles south of Hwy. 11) is located at 1322 Rocky Hollow Road Atkins, VA.
