This program is 8 weeks long and will meet on the same day at the same time every week (for the entire day). To get the most out of this series, you should attend every class. Each week will build off of the previous week’s lessons. This class is designed for the family (ages 6 and up). This series will focus on plant education and also some wildcrafting. This is a must have class if you want to learn to forage from the landscape for both medicinal and edible use. This a great class for kids: draw, write, build your own journal for plant identification, and build your own herbariums.
