This class will resume with social distancing measures in place. It will be held entirely outdoors and will be limited to 6 participants.
Root your herbal know-how with a field day in the Sierra Nevada foothills! Learn to identify commonly used medicinals – cultivated, native, and “weedy” varieties – that grow well in our climate and can be used for health and wellness.
The class includes basics in recognizing plant families, ethics in wild harvesting, and how to harvest, dry and process fresh plants. We’ll prepare herbal medicines in the field, review procedures for basic alcohol and vinegar extractions, medicinal oils, and discuss medicinal applications of common and easy to grow plants in the Sierra Nevada foothills. Participants will take home medicinal preps made in the field for their home apothecary.
This field class is intended for those who have some basic familiarity with herbal medicine and would like to build on their knowledge and learn more about how to identify and work with fresh plants. Wondering if its for you? Contact us for more details.
