EDIBLE & MEDICINAL PLANTS OF THE BAY AREA: Seasonal Herb Walk (Fall Session)
From the mist shrouded sea cliffs to the sun-baked arid expanse of its eastern most regions, the San Francisco Bay Area provides us with a chance to view a large variety of botanical specimens all within a relatively small geographical range. Join us as we discover together the diverse array of both edible and medicinal plants found growing within these contrasting yet closely interconnected micro-climates. Historical and modern medicinal applications will be covered along with any edible and/or utilitarian potential. Tips on basic/intermediate plant identification will be offered with a special emphasis on plant family characteristics as well as differentiating poisonous look-alike plants from their beneficial counterparts.
Oakland, CA. Saturday, December 8. 10am-4pm. $50

Frequently asked questions:
-So I paid the class fee via PayPal...am I now officially registered and on the roster? Yes, your spot in class is now secure. PayPal will not accept payments when a class is already sold out.
-How long/demanding will the hike be? Typically no more than 2-4 moderate miles...with LOTS of stops to ID/discuss plants.
-Can I bring my dog? Sorry, no pets (for a litany of reasons).
-Is it OK to bring my child? My 6-hour adult-level workshops are in no way suitable for younger children. Trust me: they would be bored to tears.
-I see that hundreds/thousands of people have clicked on "interested and/or going" for this event...what are your class size limits? Don't take Facebook numbers too seriously folks...I cap these sorts of workshops at around 25 students.
-Will the class be canceled in the event of bad weather? Typically, no. And as is mentioned in the description: "Class will occur RAIN OR SHINE!". Only EXTREME weather with torrential rain, wind, and possible flooding will likely lead to a cancelation. I'll keep the participants well informed with current weather conditions in the lead up to the class.
-When should I expect to receive directions, carpool info, and other more specific class details? As is CLEARLY stated in the above class description: "Detailed directions and other more specific class info (including carpool networking) will be emailed out to the registered/paid students by November 28. IMPORTANT NOTE: this message will be sent to the email associated with your PayPal transaction (and for some people this may not be their primary email)."
