Farm to Medicine Cabinet Plant Walk with Emma Merritt

1161 Harbor Road
Shelburne, VT

Our farm landscapes are not only capable of producing nourishing foods but also powerful plant-based medicines from weeds, cover crops, ornamental gardens, forests, and backyards.  This “weed walk” will introduce participants to medicinal plants commonly found on different parts of the Vermont farm landscape and invites participants to engage in deepening the local food movement by incorporating nature-based local medicine as part of a resilient food system. This program is offered in partnership with Railyard Apothecary by Urban Moonshine & Burlington Herb Clinic.

Emma Merritt is a clinical herbalist and educator that specializes in the art and science of traditional western herbalism, often using the familiar plants that grow all around us in the Northeastern United States. Emma has been working with the Burlington community as a professional herbalist since 2013. She has a certificate of completion from the Vermont Center for Integrative Herbalism’s three year Clinical Training Program representing over 1,300 hours of advanced instruction and experience in the art, science, and practice of herbalism, including over 200 hours of supervised clinical internship.

Registration is required, $12/person. Please visit our event page to learn more.
