Where the Wild Teas Are

  • 36th St. E & River Parkway W. Minneapolis, MN

Many people purchase their teas at the grocery store, but some of the best-tasting and most healthful teas are wild and free! Join the North Country Food Alliance at a unique oak savanna ecosystem along the Mississippi River and learn to identify a diversity of edible and medicinal plants, including wild bergamot, mullein, mugwort, and yarrow. There will also be pre-made samples of wild tea available for your drinking pleasure!

Please note that we can't legally harvest wild plants from Minneapolis park lands, but we can learn to identify them and look for others on neighboring properties.

Be prepared for bugs! Bring spray and/or wear long pants.

Meet at the intersection of East 36th St. and West River Parkway. I will have a sign. Please be on time, as we will be wandering around and you won't find us if you're late!

Suggested donation of $5. No one will be turned away for lack of funds.

**Class size is limited. To register, please email with the names of the participants. Thank you.
