We will cover basics of herbal energetics, actions, and organ affinities; histories of herbal care; plant identification and wildcrafting; basic medicine-making; and, of course, detailed information about using a variety of local plants. We will focus on plants that already grow here and those that are easily cultivated by the beginner gardener.
