Herb Walk in SF!

Explore the greenery popping up after all of this abundant rain! Learn about local medicinal plants and how to use and identify them on a tour in one of my favorite green spaces in San Franciso, Glen Park Canyon. 

$20 per person. This walk is limited to 8 people. Limited space to ensure audibility and ease of movement. We will meet for approximately 2.5 hours. This trail has a somewhat strenuous uphill terrain and stairs for a portion of where we will go. We will be going slow and resting while talking for most of the tour.
