Edible & Medicinal Weeds

Class Details

COVID UPDATE: We anticipate ongoing concerns through the winter/spring semester. Therefore, this class will be offered in our live online interactive format.

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.
