The last Natural Science Program to round out the season at the Wilhelm Reich Museum will be “Medicinal Plant Walk and Talk,” featuring Abbi Mountain on Sunday, August 26 at 2 p.m. Abbi has been studying and working with medicinal plants around the world for the past eight years. She is a certified massage therapist, yoga instructor and doula. Her training and interest in medicine has always focused on simple, affordable, sustainable — and joyful! – ways to stay well. She grows and wild-harvests as much as she can on her family farm and sells her herbal products locally. The Medicinal Plant Walk and Talk will be an afternoon stroll through the forest, field and parking lot of the Orgonon property to learn more about the local medicinal plants growing right under our feet, and the traditional and innovative ways to use them. This is a “don’t miss” workshop for anyone interested in plants and medicinal herbs, no matter the experience level!
Sunday Nature Workshops are from 2 – 4 p.m. and are FREE of charge. Participants should meet at the Sheltered Classroom on the Orgonon property in Rangeley. Drive up the road to the museum. The Sheltered Classroom will be on the right of the trail marked “Tomb.” Dress appropriately for a woods/field walk. Water and insect repellant are suggested. Everyone is welcome. FMI, call 864-3443.
