Plant Tour

Plant Tour

Join us on a journey as we observe different seasonal plants in their natural habitats. Along the way, we will discuss the medicinal benefits and potential hazards of various local flora, as well as showcase the utility of the environment we inhabit. Differences in season, time, weather, and location create diversity within the plant kingdom, making each tour unique. We invite you to grow along with us and strengthen your relationship with our local plant life!
