During these hikes, you will learn more about the folk, magical, medicinal, and culinary uses of herbs, trees, and shrubs that grow in our own backyard. Safe plant ID and ethical wild crafting will be taught, along with easy to make herbal remedies for everyday ailments. Herb walks are held at various local trails, open spaces, or the Gaviota Coastal area.
