Learn about locally available wild foods and medicinal plants with Jesse Brownlee of Half Wild, LLC. This is an entry level course that provides a broad overview of edible and medicinal plants ranging from familiar ‘weeds’ to important native plants to harder-to-find niche species.

This classroom-style course includes:
– Identification of species (including any poisonous look-a-likes)
– when and where to find them
– information on current and historical uses

Tuition:  $35

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.
