Join author, herbalist, and long-distance hiker Heather Houskeeper for a closer look at the edible and medicinal plants growing in our own backyards, along our city sidewalks, and in the forgotten urban thickets. Class will consist of a slideshow and a lesson on how to easily identify, harvest, and utilize some of our most common wild edible and medicinal plants, many of which often go overlooked. Ample time will be provided for question and answer and group discussion. Homemade herbal tea will be provided.
