Botany And Ecology For Herbalists says
Join us for a crash course in plant id and ecology. In this day-long class we will explore the farm to go over some basic botany - gotta know what that plant is if you plan on making medicine! Then we will walk the forested area to see some of the plant communities that are present at low elevation and see what stories they have to share with us. Knowing this can be useful for finding certain plants and gaging the effects of us working with the land. In all this our theme will be reconnecting with place via plants.

Gradey Proctor is a botanist who has spent the last dozen years teaching
plants and ecosystems for Bark, and the Arctos School of Herbal and
Botanical Studies. His training comes from the Columbines School of
Botanical studies, years of monitoring forests in the Pacific NW, working
on a CSA farm, and the Kamana naturalist program. A native of places
without intact ecosystems, Gradey has spent the last 15 years falling in
love with the Northwest, and continually striving to build relationships
with his environment. His passion is in finding new ways to keep healthy
forests and healthy people one and the same.
