Course Overview

Each week, we will meet for a lecture and herb walk at a different field location in the Albuquerque area. In this class, we will delve into the foundations of field herbalism, where we explore botany and plant identification, learn about local flora of central New Mexico, land stewardship and ethics, journaling, wildcrafting and field medicine. Your study of plant cycles, climate and growing conditions will deepen your connection with the plants, empowering you to interact knowledgeably and ethically with wild plants and their ecosystems.
