We loved it!! Such a witchy vibe!

it was truly breathtaking! This isn’t a tour about the Salem Witch Trials, but rather a tour through the Salem woods as we discover mushrooms and plants within the woods and their uses. You will truly learn what it means to be a witch! If you are into learning and love witchy things, this is a tour for you! My friends and I dressed up as Over the Garden Wall characters (if you know, you know) and it was such a vibe during our 3:00 tour when the sun the shining on the golden trees

This tour is an amazing change of pace, from the craziness of Essex street. Great to spend time with nature, learn about plants and their properties. The forest is beautiful and Euni is very knowledgeable and gives a fantastic experience. Blessed be the mushroom witch.
