Gulf Coast DIVAs Edible Plant Walk

April 23 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm

Gulf Coast DIVAs Edible Plant Walk


Come help the Gulf Coast DIVAs discover the natural abundance which surrounds us.  Join in a walk to find wild, edible plants in May Day Park.  These tasty treats are very abundant in the Spring and we will be sampling several.  Participants will also make their own butter and tea from local, wild, edible plants during this adventure.  Upon completion of the walk, members will enjoy a seasonal salad and snacks made from plants harvested during the evening, as well as other fresh favorites, while enjoying the gorgeous South Alabama sunset.


This adventurous evening is led by Brinkley Hutchings, trained naturalist and founder of Nature Connect. Brinkley has a degree in environmental science and studies local plants and animals weekly with students and peers.  Therefore, she is a “seasoned” professional regarding local, edible, plants.
