Garden Herb Walk

Garden Herb Walk

About this Workshop

Stroll through the fabulous gardens of UBC Farm, learning how to differentiate plants using identifying features and applying both common and Latin names. Learn about their many uses for humans, animals and the environment in which they grow and how the different flavours of a plant help to indicate the effect they can have on the body. Leave with increased confidence in plant identification and understand why some cultures attribute plants with different character traits.

Remember to bring a pen, paper, and weather appropriate attire for the session.
