Edible Plants & Medicinal Plants - Oct 8 & 9 

Edible Plants: The world around us is full of an incredible bounty of edible wild plants that are even more packed with nutrients then most domesticated crops. Plus, many of them are not just nutritious but really tasty too! It is only in our very recent history that human beings have largely stopped harvesting wild plants. This class will teach you all of the things you need to know to start your wildcrafting journey, including some common local edibles, wild plant harvesting and preparation, and recommended resources that will help you to continue your learning journey. ENROLL NOW!

Medicinal Plants: Come join us to learn about some of our local native and naturalized plant medicines. The Native Americans and early settlers who lived in central Texas knew and utilized nearly all of the local plants in some form or fashion, many times for medicine. For beginners it is easy to get overwhelmed with the vast array of medicinal plant that surround us, therefore this class we will focus on a handful of the most useful plants of the fall season. Included in the course is a plant walk to meet the plants covered and learn accurate identification, followed by an in-depth discussion about their many uses and the best preparations for each. ENROLL NOW!
