Leader: Alex Klein
About Alex: Alex Klein is an Herbalist and Arborist based in Boston. He has wildcrafted up and down the East Coast, from NH to FL, getting to know well the flora and local ecologies of the region, as well as modern and historical uses of numerous plants. He currently practices as an herbalist, striving to use only plants he has gathered from the wild or grown in his garden. He is also an Arborist at the Mount Auburn Cemetery.
About the hike: Let's amble through the woods making new plant friends and getting to know better some older familiar ones. We'll talk about medicinal uses and edibility, including some tips on processing and cooking. Every different time of year brings its own unique identification features for trees and plants so we'll try to hone in on Summer ID techniques. We'll also discuss safe and ethical foraging practices, as well as the relevant ecological roles played by local species.
