All Things Nettles with Lacey Walker [ONLINE]
May 6, 2020 @ 4:00 pm - 5:30 pmFree
Let’s discuss this prickly topic–exploring how Nettles deliver their sting and how to identify them in the field (other than getting a surprising zap!). We’ll dive deep into nettle’s historical uses, ranging from making cordage and cloth to increasing milk production in mammals to addressing hay fever symptoms and providing essential nutrients to the body.
