A walk to discover the medicinal plants of the Pre-Alps

Jun 18, 2022
- Nature

Joachim Halgrain takes you on a walk to discover the medicinal plants of our region.

These hikes take you through the different natural environments of Leysin: woods, meadows and scree where you will find varieties of plants and flowers that are magnificently well adapted to these mountain climates and biotopes.

The emphasis is on rigorous botanical identification using a simple vocabulary and the five senses. You are thus guided, step by step, towards autonomy in picking. By the end of the day, everyone will be able to recognise at least 5 of the most interesting plants.
