Explore the beauty of native southeastern medicinal plants through field identification. Using the expansive resources of the NCBG display gardens and the Piedmont Nature Trails behind the Garden, students take in the abundant medicine that our local flora has to offer. Topics include field identification, ethical gathering and harvesting, history and lore of each plant, therapeutic and medicinal uses, and preparations. Unless there are severe storms, this class will take place rain or shine. About 45 minutes of instruction will take place in our Joslin Combined Classroom and the remainder of the class period will be spent outdoors.
