Wild and Native Medicinal Garden

Our May work day was a bit of a challenge; since we had so much rain, the ‘weeds’ were running rampant. By weeds I mean plants that were not intentionally planted in the beds and those growing throughout the pathways, making it difficult to discern where to walk. John and I did our best, but we still have a way to go. We did have two visitors from Bergen County so we had fun learning and talking together about Echinacea, Plantain, Wild Ginger, Goldenrod, St. John’s Wort and many of our other green friends. At our next garden day, we are planning to transplant some of our migrating plants into their respective beds and start clearing Artemisia to make way for some new beds. Come join us for our next Learn and Work day on June 17th.  ~ Karen
