On Saturday, September 9th, attend an edible foraging walk and talk with Marguerite Uhlmann-Bower, R.N., Herbalist and Plant Pioneers director. This program takes place at the Catskill Center's Platte Clove Preserve. Please note that parking is very limited. Participants must park at the Huckleberry Point Trail head parking lot.

The outdoors walk begins with deep inquiry around developing mutual forest intelligence. Harvesting with our senses. See wild plants as allies, weeds as dense nutrients and all, as teachers of living an ecologically balanced life. Marguerite feels, “the foundation of our future, resides in our ability to taste our roots (past), this way guides us in moving forward in better health.”

The later portion of the afternoon offers a wild food tasting, drinks and their recipes. While we sit and enjoy weed foods made by Marguerite, there will be a live introduction that demonstrates - there’s a lot more going on with our plants than meets the eye. Music of the Plants technology liberates plant frequencies into sound giving them a voice, so to speak, that up until recent years has not been heard. Validating scientific literature is reviewed from the Society of Plant Signaling & Behavior and the MINT Lab in Spain is relayed. By attending this workshop, part of the proceeds goes to bring this same workshop to children of all ages.

Through human-plant investigations and other programs (see, learn to work with plants as food and medicinal
virtues, jump start your genetic memory; develop a human-plant reciprocity
where its purpose confirms a viable future, regardless of a plants utility and
restore our connection to place.
