Find out if your backyard is brimming with food and healing plants – in the form of some of our most common weeds! Spend an evening learning how to identify and safely use these plants which can be plentiful in the North Bay region during the summer. Join herbalist Autumn Summers to learn how to tap into the wellness benefits of these plants – like using milk thistle seed for liver support, creating a St. John’s wort oil for sprains and bruises, healing skin with plantain, and adding healthy omega –3 fatty acids to your diet with purslane.

This is the first of a seasonal series on edible and medicinal plants we will be offering, taught by Autumn. Registration to open soon for upcoming classes in August – Immunity Support, and September – Fall Edibles. Stay tuned!

From her first herb class over 25 years ago, Autumn has been exploring the many facets of herbalism. An avid gardener and wild foods forager, she teaches on how to grow your own herbs and how to safely and sustainably gather and use abundant edible and medicinal plants, seaweeds and mushrooms in Northern California at the California School of Herbal Studies. She is passionate about sharing this empowering knowledge with others in a responsible and interactive way.

This class will consist of a live multimedia presentation and include interactive time for Q&A.

This class will be recorded, however the recording will only be made available to those who have registered. Please register if you’d like to participate or view the recording!
