Herb Identification Walk at Mount Sanitas

*This event has reached maximum capacity, thanks for your interest!*

Useful herbs line the trails around Colorado. On this herb walk, we’ll identify and discuss the plants surrounding the Mount Sanitas trail. Herbs have been used for centuries, for everything from food to fiber, dye, soap, and medicine. You will learn to identify treasures such as plantain, gum weed, and lambsquarter, and also learn wonderful uses for them.

Instructor Brigitte Mars is a medical herbalist and nutritional consultant who has been working with Natural Medicine for over forty years. She has taught Herbal Medicine at Naropa University, Omega Institute, Esalen, Kripalu, The Mayo Clinic, Bauman College of Holistic Nutrition, The School of Natural Medicine and Just for Health. She blogs for the Huffington Post and Care2. She is also a professional member of the American Herbalist Guild.

Brigitte is the author of many books and DVDs, including The Country Almanac of Home Remedies, The Desktop Guide to Herbal Medicine, Beauty by Nature, Addiction Free Naturally, The Sexual Herbal, Healing Herbal Teas, and Rawsome!. Her latest project is a phone app called IPlant.
