Edible & Medicinal Plants of the Oak Grasslands
Ever wondered how the local plants can be used for food and medicine? Join Sonoran herbalist John Slattery for a walk through the oak grasslands of Oracle State Park. We’ll identify and discuss a variety of plants growing in the park while covering some aspects of botany, ethnobotany, harvesting techniques, medicine making, food preparation, clinical applications, and even how you might implement these plants into your home landscape. Each participant will leave with a renewed sense of awe and inspiration for the desert in which they live. Class is free with park admission.
