The Edible and Medicinal Plants course will get you out in the fields and teach you how to harvest the bounty of the land. Wild edibles are so abundant in so many locations, and many people around the world live in hunger simply because they have a lack of knowledge about the plants around them. Our instructors will cover the 50 most common plants in our area and North America. The Edible and Medicinal Plants course is a very hands-on oriented course that will take us on walks in several different types of ecosystems so that you are prepared to find food in almost any environment. Students will have the opportunity to taste the plants we harvest in order to know and understand the wonderful flavors involved in wild crafting! Not only will we cover the edible uses, but also the medicinal, utilitarian, and various bushcraft uses of wild plants.

Topics covered include:

This course will cover the basics of plant identification and procurement, and if you want to upgrade your skills from here, then we recommend the Herbal Medic or Wild Crafter courses. The Edible and Medicinal Plants course is a 3-part series, each part taken in a different season so that students learn the cycle of plants in their area. It's vital to study in every season so that you are able to see the different stages of plants and also how the plants' availability changes from one season to the next! If you have an interest in learning the botany of your surroundings, then this is the first place to begin. Plant knowledge will truly change your life and the way you perceive the wilderness! This is a very comprehensive course. Many students are overwhelmed with the amount of info and plant knowledge we cover, so be prepared to take notes!
