Walk The Watershed: Planting for Healing | June 28, 2020

Sarah DePasquale – herbalist and landowner, and Andrea Ferich, initiator of the multifunctional riparian buffers, take you on a virtual tour of the project planted at Fiddler’s Bend Farm. Learn more about riparian buffers planted by PVCA through a grant from the Chesapeake Bay Trust. Sarah shares how she utilizes some of the many plants in their farm’s buffer and demonstrates the medicinal preparation of elderflower syrup. These buffers benefit wildlife and landowners alike while preserving water quality.

You can view the photo album of Sarah and Jim’s Farm, as well as a handful of Andrea’s work here…
