Take a stroll around the cemetery to learn about the medicinal properties of some common weeds and trees located here. The Woodlands has a long been a botanical hub in Philly; you'll explore some botanical history, as well as get into the historic and contemporary uses of weeds like Dandelion, Mugwort, and Violet. Basic plant ID covered, no experience necessary!
