|Covering the basics at the beginning of the tour. Those are my kids by the log, trying to decide if they are brave enough to touch the "stinging metal".|
The turn out was around a dozen adults and lots of kids of all ages. We covered around 20 useful plants as well as two lovely specimens of poison hemlock.

|What were we looking at here? Garlic mustard, I think.|
|Here's a good shot of the group. Couldn't ask for better people to spend time with!|
I think it was a great time, and I look forward to leading more tours in the future! Please contact me if you'd like to set something up.
|I had to consult my notes from time to time, Dave caught me. I'll get better.|
Note: next time I will try to get pictures of each plant we cover, so I can give a brief description of them here on the blog.
