Edible & Medicinal Weeds

Class Details

COVID Information: We are planning for an in-person session. We are hopeful the pandemic will subside by this time but some precautions may still be required. We will update this information over the winter. (Please note: The class date is too far away to know what the pandemic cirumstances will be at this time. We hope COVID will not be a serious concern but masks could be required for all participants or, if conditions worsen, the class could be livestreamed. We hope neither will be necessary but must acknowledge the possibility.)

Gardeners and Herbalists, put those pesky weeds to good use! In this 2 hour class, students will learn about local edible and medicinal weeds commonly found in parks, fields, yards, roadsides, and waste areas of the Albuquerque area.

Herb discussions will include identification, harvesting, preparation, herbal actions, and healing or culinary uses for each plant. We will end with a short neighborhood weed walk to practice ID skills.
