Even at the end of the growing season, a meadow is rich with gifts.
Join Holden Arboretum Gardner Jessica Burns to get hands-on with some of our common native plants as you hike to harvest natural fibers to make cordage. This beginner class will teach you how to identify fibrous plants like dogbane and common milkweed, how to ethically harvest and process the fibers, and one simple technique for making natural cordage.
Terrain: 2.0 miles, mostly flat, some paved, some natural surface
