Arnold Arboretum Herb Walk in Jamaica Plain

The Arnold Arboretum is an herbalist's delight. And not just because the trees are labeled! It's a great place to take an herb walk in Jamaica Plain. Come join us and learn to identify trees, shrubs, herbs, and - especially - "weeds"! Even if they're not tagged, you can still know who's growing in your city.

The ability to identify and use each of these plants was once commonplace to every man, woman, and child, but today most of us have lost that knowledge. Come reclaim what's yours! Join us regularly throughout the spring, summer, and early fall and learn the plants in all of their stages of growth. By the end of these sessions, you'll feel confident in your ability to identify the plants along the river - and you'll how know you can work with them!

6:00pm - 7:00pm
125 Arborway, Boston MA 02130

Meet at the main gate to the Arnold Arboretum. That is the entrance on the Arborway, by the Hunnewell visitor's center.
Feel free to bring a notebook or sketchbook, camera, etc. The fee for the herb walk is $10.

Herb walks are "Sprinkle or Shine!" - if it's just damp or a bit drizzly, we'll walk anyway. If it's raining enough to need an umbrella, that makes it hard to learn, so we will cancel in that event.

Interested in having us come and do an herb walk somewhere in particular? Let us know!
