The class will be an intro level class welcome to all levels of experience. It will be centered around learning to identify some common backyard herbs using botany with the intention of strengthening our relationship and familiarity through observation. I will introduce participants to the idea of using organoleptics (our senses) as a way of strengthening knowledge and awareness of herbs. The presenter will share benefits of the 5-10 herbs as well as basic ways to use herbs in infused teas, vinegars, oils, and honey.
