A plant lover from the ground up, writer, mushroom expert and herb whisperer Terry Anya Hayes grew up eating what the earth freely offers. For decades now, on walks and in foraging weekends at venues throughout the Northeast, she has taught others how to do the same — to recognize, appreciate, and accept the gifts of those extraordinary plants that plant themselves.

This March garden club program, originally to be held at Birch Bay Village, will now be held via Zoom and is open to the public. With a limit of 100 participants, you must reserve a spot by sending an email to president@barharborgardenclub.org by March 8th.

For help in troubleshooting any Zoom problems contact president@barharborgardenclub.org or publicity@barharborgardenclub.org.
