About The Event

Are you ready to take the guesswork out of plant identification and want to learn to accurately identify plants?

In this class we will survey common herbal plant families in the United States and meet our local members of each family.  Each week we will peel back the layers of language of plants in Botany terms and learn how to use this terminology to identify flowering plants in the field.

Learn how to recognize plants by their common visual characteristics, taste, smell & feel.  Understand what members of each plant family have in common, their safety and key stand out features that will help you recognize plants all around the world.  Walk away with a toolkit to learn how to substitute plants in formulas, no matter what region you are in!

What you will learn:

o   Survey over 40 plant families and common herbs and plants within them

o   Study in depth Botany terms, and describe the world through a new plant language

o   Learn how to recognize plants in the field by visual & organoleptic features

o   Understand the common edible, poisonous and medicine plants by plant family

o   Learn common safety, side effects, and contraindications for members in each plant family
