st. andrews crossTo really know and understand the plant kingdom you must observe it year round. Our seasonal workshops will guide you through different habitats and ecosystems to identify, collect, and sample wild plant foods. This course will cover several different types of plants, shrubs, and trees in this region that are edible, medicinal, and utilitarian. We will also point out native, non-native invasive, and poisonous plants. This workshop will teach you when, where, and how to safely collect plants and important conservation techniques to ensure future harvests.

Plant Quiz: Questions about the above photo....Do the leaves grow opposite, alternately or whorled? Does it have a round or square stem? How many leaves are there? Is it woody or fleshy?
