Have you ever tasted a roasted bay nut, nettle pesto, or sautéed milk thistle greens? You are surrounded by food and medicine if you know what to look for! Come explore the world of edible plants found at Pepperwood and throughout Sonoma County with Autumn Summers, teacher and program coordinator for the California School of Herbal Studies.

Class will begin inside with a lecture and hands-on experience identifying, cooking, and tasting local edible plants. Then you’ll head out on the trails near the Pepperwood’s Dwight Center for a moderate 1-3 mile hike at a slow pace. This class will focus on the plants available during the fall season. Autumn will cover how you can identify, properly harvest, store, and prepare our regional foods.
