Edible and Medicinal Plants of Pepperwood
Have you ever tasted a roasted bay nut, nettle pesto or sautéed milk thistle greens? Come explore the world of edible and medicinal plants found at Pepperwood Preserve and throughout Sonoma County. We will discover the native and naturalized plants that have been gathered by humans for hundreds to thousands of years. Class will begin inside with a morning lecture and hands-on experience including identifying fresh plants and making and tasting the local edibles. Then we'll head out on the trails near the Bechtel House. Bring lunch, water, and field guides (if you have them), and wear appropriate apparel for outdoor trails.
Ages 14 and up welcome.
Presenter Autumn Summers: Autumn is a teacher and program coordinator for the California School of Herbal Studies.
