How well do you know our local herbs? Our yards, roadsides, and fields are abundant with wild food and medicine.
We caution you against harvesting herbs from roadsides, but a walk along a roadway is great for honing your plant identification skills. We live inside an abundant Green Community of Sentient Beings. To know who you live amongst is always a good thing. Let’s have some fun!
Test your knowledge of local herbs with the matching/i.d. tests below. The photos may have been too small for you to see in print, but take a look below where you can enlarge your screen to see more clearly.

Answers to photo matches that were printed in the late summer/fall 2021 newsletter are found in this article!
