Join us for a week long exploration of medicinal and edible plants of the Colorado Plateau and the Mogollon Rim Country. This course is a combination of classroom lecture and outdoor, hands on, field experience. The traditional health benefits of 50+ plants will be covered during field trips along with a dozen delicious foods from the forest, riparian and high desert life zones.
Classroom time will be used to go into depth on ways to use herbs, diet and lifestyle to address such issues as: colds and ﬂu, energy, fever, infections, digestion, stress and sleep. We will also make our own batches of high quality herbal preparations such as salves, syrups and tinctures. Introductory classes will be given on interpreting plant chemistry and understanding ways to use plant families, genera and species.
The focus of this survival course is on practical, useable information and skills that are based on long term traditional uses and modern research. No prior plant or herbal experience is required.
The group will meet from 9 a.m. to late afternoon each day and lunch is provided. Lodging and other meals are extra. Limited camping with showers is offered on site for $10 per night. Public campgrounds are available nearby. Numerous hotels are in Flagstaff, 15 minutes away.
Course includes instruction, materials and lunch.
