The Fête de la Plante Médicinale 2020 honouring
Verge d’Or/ Goldenrod/ Solidago sp.
Montreal, September 26
Working in partnership with the Grand Potager, La Fête de la Plante Médicinale will be held at the Verdun Greenhouses again this year. This green space on the shores of the St. Lawrence River is a lovely place to share and learn about local plants and herbal remedies and an opportunity to build community. The Fête de la Plante Médicinale is a free event organized annually by the Guilde des herboristes to promote herbal medicine and local herbalists.
The afternoon event offers a wide selection of presentations and herb walks. Between each session is a half hour break to visit the kiosks offering small-scale local herbal products and services, or chat with other participants over a cup of tea. Don’t forget to bring your cup!
