Whether you are a beginner or have been studying for awhile, if you want to focus on local wild plants and immersing yourself in our botanical bioregion while learning directly from the plants, this is the class for you. What we will NOT cover in this class is all the fundamentals of herbalism. If you are a beginner and you want to learn ALL about herbalism, please sign up for Level 1: Herbal Foundations.
Our main focus will be the practical applications of local plant medicine. Classes will include: plant identification, practical experience using a botanical key, organoleptic testing using our 5 senses, communing with plant consciousness, discovering bioregional plant guilds, and plant family recognition. This class will be held outdoors in various wild and/or cultivated places around Austin and central Texas. Carpooling will be coordinated when class locations are finalized. We will meet for 15 Sundays and 2 Campouts and 2 Local Harvest Days from October 2017 through May 2018.
PREREQUISITES: Completion of Level 1: Herbal Foundations (or an equivalent herbalism program) OR related experience in herbal medicine making, gardening, permaculture or naturalism.
