|Thimbleberry (Rubus Parviflorus)|
|The bright red berry of the Thimbleberry. We hope to collect|
these seeds and disperse them at Bob's Place at our
Seed Collection Workshop on August 20.
And, for those Ethnobotany fans indigenous cultures had many uses for Thimbleberry, from making soap to lining baskets, and even as a remedy to bring down swelling. For more on the Thimbleberry and its many uses click here.
Next time you walk the entire loop, look for Thimbleberry. When you find it you will be looking back in time and forward across the ridges of the East Bay.
