As the colors of the landscape change and the days shorten, we are reminded that autumn has arrived. While many plants wither away, others simply shift their energy resources in order to survive the impending winter. In this class we will explore the diverse array of medicinal biennial and perennial plants found growing throughout California, with an emphasis on those native to the region. Topics of discussion will include: identifying characteristics, medicinal uses, sustainable harvesting techniques, as well as various preparation methods. The morning session will consist of a lecture/slideshow; in the afternoon, we’ll stroll the garden where we can observe more closely the many plant specimens growing there.
Location: Blue Wind Botanical Medicine Clinic.
