We are so lucky to have Bastyr University nearby in Kenmore. Take a guided tour of their mile-long Sacred Seeds Trail. This trail is part of an international project aimed to help communities stay connected to native plants. The living ?classroom? is used to teach visitors about identification, seed saving and cultivation of native plants. It also preserves ethnobotanical knowledge of how they have been used in the past for food, medicine and ceremonies.
After the tour, we'll have lunch in their "green" cafeteria with the opportunity to try their healthy food or bring your lunch from home.
Due to limited parking at Bastyr, all participants must ride on the YMCA bus for this excursion.
