Come join us as we learn to create a variety of botanical medicines using many native California plants.

Starting with an overview of some basic principles of plant chemistry, we will examine different extraction methods while learning when they can be best applied. The remainder of the class will be devoted to preparing a number of different herbal products, giving us a chance to put theory into practice.
