Adkins Arboretum’s Soup ’n Walk Program

Adkins Arboretum continues its popular Soup ’n Walk programs. Discover green plants in winter, early blooms and wildlife, ephemeral flowers, sure signs of spring, meadow grasses, fall color and plants that feed animals. Following a guided walk through the Arboretum’s forest, meadows and wetland, enjoy a hearty lunch along with a brief talk about nutrition. Copies of recipes are provided, and all gift shop purchases on these days receive a 20% discount. Walks are all from 11 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. This year concludes with:
Nutritious Berries, Nuts and Seeds
Enjoy the autumn harvest as we hunt for nutritious berries, nuts and seeds and check for signs of beaver. Plants of interest include dogwood, hibiscus, partridge berry, oak, loblolly pine, juniper, verbena, ironwood and strawberry bush. Menu: spicy sweet potato soup, broccoli carrot raisin salad, pumpernickel bread, yellow cake with apple cranberry sauce.
