Herb Walk at The Grotto with Claire Porter

March 28 @ 11:00 am - 12:30 pm


You may have visited the Grotto in Northeast Portland before but I promise that you’ll never see it quite the same way again after this awesome Herb Walk on its grounds! We’ll not only identify plants such as Oregon Grape and Vanilla Leaf, but also discover their healing medicinal uses! We’ll end our walk with some tea made from at least one of the plants we discover along the way! Wear comfortable shoes and bring rain gear – just in case.

Claire Porter loved playing among plants as a child and her love grew into a career in habitat restoration and ecological landscaping which she has pursued for the past 18 years. Besides learning about their ecological value, Claire also loves to study both the historic and current medicinal uses of local native plants – which she can’t wait to share with you on her next herb walk. When not digging around in her own backyard, you can find her at Echo Valley Natives Nursery in Oregon City, guiding educational nursery tours and playing in the dirt!
