It's Here! The 2016 Nettles Festival is January 22!
Trees for Health volunteers, members of the San Diego Herb Guild, professional herbalists and student herbalists are all invited to come harvest nettles in the Trees for Health Garden on Friday, January 22. The Trees for Health Garden is located on Balboa Drive just south of the Camp Fire Boys and Girls Camp and just north of Quince Drive. Follow this link for a map.
Once you have harvested what you need, please be prepared to stay and help clear the garden of nettles for at least one hour. The park allows us to grow the nettles as long as we remove them in a timely fashion. You may start later than 8 AM, but may miss the best nettles.
Please check in with Joanne Odenthal when you arrive. Joanne will be wearing a green shirt and yellow volunteer vest - and a name tag. Everyone there to harvest MUST have a name tag prior to starting. (We need a record of who has joined the fun!)
Bring water, a hat, your own gloves and a bag for your harvest.
