Event
Overview
In this very experiential and fun class, you will learn all about the wonderful evergreen trees (pine, redwood + more) growing near you and how to make some good herbal medicine through ethical wildcrafting and foraging. This will be highly experiential and an on-foot class in the Presidio of San Francisco. We will go over the ethics and important considerations for wild foraging from evergreen trees, as well as wild herbs and plants. And then you will get to walk and connect with some powerfully medicinal trees, herbs and plants growing in plain sight. You will learn how to ethically wildcraft resin from a tree to make skin and wound healing salves, and also how to harvest new fir tips to make a highly medicinal tea if you choose.

The deep and powerful wisdom of the herbal realm has mostly been forgotten in our modern culture. Plants, flowers, trees and herbs are incredible allies for our health. Opening up your vision to the medicinal plants growing everywhere is a key to seeing beyond what is often called the “green wall” of nature. Knowing what you are seeing is a very exciting revelation.Note : This class will be outdoors so please make sure to dress accordingly with warm and cool layers as we know the weather can shift easily in the Bay Area. And be prepared in case it rains! Please also wear good hiking-type shoes!This class is open to those who are curious, and want to deepen in their awareness of working with what I call our “green allies.”IMPORTANT NOTE : Once you register you will receive the location where we will meet (in Golden Gate Park - NOT at The Center!), and please make sure not to be late as we will start in one location, and shortly after will begin our walk!
