Free Introduction to Regenerative Design Institute’s Herbal Studies Programs
In preparation for our upcoming herbal studies programs, RDI is offering this introductory class to prospective students who are interested in meeting the program’s instructor, Tellur Fenner, and visiting the RDI site. The event will serve as a Q&A session where Tellur will be available to respond to questions you may have about the programs.
California is home to a diverse array of edible & medicinal plants long valued for their nutritional and therapeutic effects. In this class we will explore some of the more common edible/medicinal plants found growing in the Central Coast region, with a focus on historical as well as modern use. Topics to be covered include: field botany/plant I.D, plant family characteristics, ethical harvesting/processing/preparation methods, edible/medicinal/utilitarian uses, regional ethnobotany, botanical safety issues (plus tips on how to avoid poisonous look-a-like plants), California natural history, sampling of a variety of edible/medicinal plants, and more! Our study will emphasize a dynamic sensory awareness of the plants via close observation, touching, tasting, and smelling.
