This course is a 4 part series, in which you will learn about wild herbs from a variety of habitats in central New Mexico in 2 classes and then experience many of them as living plants during 2 field trips. Through this series we will explore plant communities of the Bosque, the Sandias, the Chihuahua Desert, and the high mesa country. In the 2 hour classes herb discussions will include the wild habitat, cultivation, harvesting, preparation, dosage, herbal actions, healing uses, and ecological issues for selected plants. We will also do some hands-on medicine making, preparing a water-soluble tincture and a famous turn-of-the century herbal formula for you to keep. The wild herb walks will take place in the areas surrounding Albuquerque and focus on plant identification and changing landscapes. This series costs $98 (including all supplies) and is limited to 12. It is offered through The Source and classroom sessions take place at 1111 Carlisle SE.
