Identify, gather and preserve your herbs from the garden or the wild. Each of the 4 morning sessions, you will meet at a different field location in the Albuquerque area. Learn the foundations of field botany and plant identification and be introduced to the work herbalists do in the field.  Topics include: Basic botany used for plant identification, local medicinal plant materia medica, field tools, journaling, wildcrafting and ethics. Your study of plant cycles, climate and growing conditions will deepen your connection with the plants, empowering you to interact knowledgeably and ethically with plants in the field.
