Foraging Wild Plants of US
Session 1 begins with a plant walkabout to get to know the common local wild food plants (both native and exotic) and other useful plants, including plants that can be used to make soap, rope, and medicine.

Basic botany will be covered to give a sense of context of the types of plant groups, such as entirely safe groups and families, as well as their relationships.

Participants will be instructed on the use of the plant press, how to construct a DIY plant press, and how to keep field records for reference. Bring: water, sunscreen, items for short day hike.
This is a hands on learning experience.
Upon completion of this class series, participants may request a certificate of completion. Completing six different workshops or class series qualifies one to work towards a Self-Reliance Skills Specialist certification.
