– Identification of species (including any poisonous look-a-likes)

This course is the first in a series that will be held at TreeSong in the coming months and will provide a good foundation for understanding the intricacies of local edible/medicinal flora. Subsequent courses will focus on 4-6 species that are seasonally available and will include hands-on learning that covers field identification, gathering and processing of these plants.
