Autumn Summers, Instructor

Come explore the bounty of local wild and naturalized medicines and foods that grow throughout Northern California to include in your wellness kit and kitchen pantry. Between time in the classroom and on the trail we will discover the many native and introduced plants of the Bay Area that have been used as food and medicine to sustain life and health for hundreds of years. Autumn will share some folklore and material culture uses, and help us develop a deeper appreciation for our green neighbors. These riches include familiar plants such as stinging nettle, acorn, miner's lettuce, milk thistle, manzanita, oak, willow, California bay and California poppy plus some not so familiar plants including coffee berry, usnea and local seaweeds. We are surrounded by medicine and food if we know what to look for. We will cover how to identify, properly harvest and use these herbs as well as make and taste nettle pesto, roasted bay nuts and an acorn savory dip.
