Edible & Medicinal Weeds

Class Details

COVID UPDATE: We hope to offer this as an in-person classroom/field trip session but are prepared to host it as a live interactive online event. We will update this page with current information as it becomes available.

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.
