Poudre Plant Walk with Laura Cascardi

August 13, 2022 @ 6:30 pm - 9:00 pm

Join us for a free plant walk with Laura Cascardi, Founder and Director of Equinox Center of Herbal Studies, and the Poudre River Library District. The majority of our local flora provide us with a wondrous palate of wild medicine and food! Engage with the plants that surround us through a taste-full, identification-based herb walk while learning the medicine they offer. Meet us at 6:30 at Lee Martinez Park (the sign near Dazbog) for this informational plant walk, ending at the Publick House for drinks and casual discussion.

Laura’s passion for herbalism, healing, and well-being is evident in her 20 + years of working with herbs and people. She began her formal education with herbs at the Rocky Mountain Center of Botanical studies where she graduated in 2001 as a certified herbalist. In 2013 she graduated from Colorado State University with a bachelor’s degree in Biological Sciences with a concentration in Botany. In 2014, Laura co-founded the Equinox Center of Herbal Studies where she is the director and one of the primary teachers. In private consultations she works one on one to discover tools for personal wellness that best serve each person. She focuses on creating a safe space where the individual can explore spiritual, emotional and physical growth.

Laura loves coupling her herbal knowledge with her botanical expertise, and as a long-time resident of the Front Range, she is extremely familiar with local flora and often hosts herb walks focusing on edible and medicinal uses of local plants. Furthermore, she often offers more intensive botany workshops and private plant identification consultations to teach others how deepen their knowledge of the plants.
