HERBAL FIRST AID WORKSHOP

In former times, many Americans knew at least a handful of local wild medicinal plants used to treat minor self limiting ailments. This is no longer the case. Whether you are hiking, camping, traveling overseas, or just working in the garden...a little plant knowledge can go a long way in protecting you and your family's health...and at little to no cost! In this class we will cover a number of medicinal first aid plants found growing across the Bay Area (and beyond), including natives, non-native "weeds", and commonly found ornamentals. Identification tips, medicinal uses, ethical harvesting/prepartion methods, and safety issues will all be addressed. Herbal treatment topics will include: wounds, sprains, burns, insect bites, poison oak dermatitis, colds/flus, fever, intestinal infections, allergies, and more. Class will consist of an interactive lecture (with plant samples & preparation demos).

Date/Time: Saturday, February 19. 10am-4pm.

Location: Blue Wind Botanical Medicine Clinic & Education Center. Oakland, CA.

Instructor: Tellur Fenner

Fee: $40
