Wild Woods Farm, Virginia Beach, VA

with Vickie Shufer M.S., Forager and Herbalist

You are invited to join us as we venture into the wilderness of Wild Woods Farm where we will identify native plants growing in their natural habitat. Our journey will lead us through a pine forest, a mature hardwood forest, and to the edges of the swamp that is the watershed for the Northwest River. Spring ephemerals are emerging and starting to bloom, tree buds are swelling, and flowering shrubs are bursting into bloom.

Space is limited. Reservations are required. Directions will be sent upon registration.

Cost: $45/person. To register, send email to Vickie@ecoimages.us
