Foraging Texas – Medicinal Plants
Saturday, July 6 @ 10 am – 11 am
Mark “Merriwether” Vorderbruggen, Ph.D. is back for another informative class. This time it’s all about medicinal plants. Mark has been a forager all his life. Both his parents were children of the Great Depression and their families foraged to get through those terrible times. Thankfully, this knowledge passed on to Merriwether. Knowing how to harvest nature’s free food fed him through the thin years of childhood and on through getting a master’s degree in medicinal chemistry and a Ph.D. in physical organic chemistry. Since 2008 his website www.foragingtexas.com has been one of the top wild edible plant sites on the internet. RSVP for this free class here!
Why and How to Garden for Wildlife in Your Own Backyard
Saturday, September 7th @ 10:00 am – 11:00 am
The average neighborhood yard looks pretty, but doesn’t support the wide range of wildlife that is crucial to a healthy environment and community. The good news is that yards can be both beautiful and beneficial by incorporating the native plants that support our local wildlife! In this presentation, Ms. Lauren Simpson will share a few handy tips on how to create a wildlife garden at your own home, for the enjoyment of your family and the benefit of your community. Come join us to learn how to transform your own yard into a beautiful, wildlife paradise! You can learn more about Ms. Simpson at her Facebook page, St. Julian’s Crossing – wildlife habitat here. Register for this informative FREE class here. (picture courtesy of University of Houston Law Center)
