    Looking at a late May date and the cost for the 6 hour course with handouts and supplies for creating the take home goodies will be $70.00 per person. Location will probably be on the North side of Indianapolis. The instructor for the course is one of the most renowned plant guys in Indiana and is a full-time naturalist. I will post more specific details soon!

    During the HANDS-ON course you will in the classroom and field as you:


    + Use a field guide to distinguish between safe and poisonous plants

    + Identify leaf arrangements, stems, roots, flowers, and fruits

    + Understand how season dictates which parts of the plant to use

    + Search for and gather wild edible plants

    + Prepare a dish using the edible plant


    + Learn about medicinal preparations, such as infusions, decoctions, tinctures, compresses, salves, and syrups

    + Make a medicinal plant tincture and salve to take home with you

    + And more!
