From the mist-shrouded sea cliffs to the sun-baked arid expanse of its easternmost regions, the San Francisco Bay Area provides us with a chance to view a large variety of botanical specimens all within a relatively small geographical range. Discover a diverse array of both edible and medicinal plants found growing across a number of these contrasting yet closely interconnected ecological zones.
Topics to be covered during this class include:
Your study will emphasize a dynamic sensory awareness of the plants via close observation, touching, tasting, and smelling. This class should prove to be insightful and rewarding for anyone interested in learning more about the flora of this unique bioregion.
