The value and the many uses of plants

This class will focus on a different ecosystems and plants from our last class. You will never see plants the same again! This class will engage your brain and all of your senses. We will will focus on edible, medicinal and poisonous properties of plants. In addition, we will learn some other uses of native plants in the region such as soap, rope, and fire-starting material. It will be loaded with tools and exercises and covers vital topics such as identification, harvesting, journaling, and ecology. Bring a pencil, pad of paper, and camera.

    This was the second meetup I've been to that was hosted by Andrew, he is an excellent teacher and I am really looking forward to the next event!

    Some of the plants shown to us today included: milkweed, gumweed, artimisia, prickly poppy, choke cherry, yucca, curly dock, cattails, thistle, dogbane, wild plum, cottonwood, willow, maple, mullein, salsify, stinging nettle, and several others! All that in only about a single mile of wandering.

    Thanks again Andrew!

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
