No, not that kind of weed – stinging nettle! Though they’re often known for their eponymous “stinging” sensation when touched, nettles are also a nourishing ingredient for herbal tea. Join the Beal Botanical Garden and MSU Museum on April 3, 2024 from 12:00 pm-1:00 pm to learn all about the history and lore around stinging nettles, try safely harvesting the plant, then enjoy a cup of freshly brewed nettle tea.
