Farm to Medicine Cabinet Plant Walk with Emma Merritt at Shelburne Farms

1611 Harbor Road, Farm Barn
Shelburne, VT

Back by popular demand, our Farm to Medicine Cabinet Plant Walk Series returns to the Farm! Our farm landscapes are capable of so much more than the first meets the eye: they produce nourishing foods, but also give us powerful plant-based medicines from weeds, cover crops, ornamental gardens, forests, and backyards. This “weed walk” will introduce you to medicinal plants commonly found on different parts of Vermont’s working lands, deepen your appreciation of the local food movement, and introduce you to nature-based, local medicine as part of a resilient food system.

Emma Merritt works as an herbalist at the Burlington Herb Clinic and Railyard Apothecary. She is a graduate of the Vermont Center for Integrative Herbalism. She enjoys writing, teaching, medicine making, and long walks in the woods.

This program is offered in partnership with Railyard Apothecary by Urban Moonshine & Burlington Herb Clinic.

Registration is required. Please contact Director of Community Programs Tre McCarney with any questions at
