Fiddleheads, Lamb’s Quarters, Nettles and Nuts: Wild Edible, Medicinal, and Poisonous Plants Justin Morrill Homestead, Strafford, Vermont Sunday, September 14th, 1:00-2:30pm Can someone really become immune to poison ivy after drinking milk produced by a goat that has eaten that plant? What did young Quaker women use for rouge when their parents forbade them from wearing makeup? Which has more vitamin C-a glass of orange juice or a glass of pine needle tea? On this walk we’ll share Colonial and Native American folklore and information to learn about the myths and realities concerning the use of wild edible, medicinal, and poisonous plants. We’ll taste some of these delectable treats in the field and sample a bit of native home-cooking—a mystery wild treat.

His other books include Native American Gardening and Everyday Herbs in Spiritual Life.
