Edible & Medicinal Weeds

Class Details

COVID Information: Masks will likely be required and other precautions may be considered. We will update this page with appropriate information during the winter.

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.
