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.
