Join me on a sensory plant walk in the foothills of the San Gabriel Mountains. Unlike some walks where we identify and discuss dozens of plants, here the focus will be on developing our sense of place and wonder. This is a walk for anyone, whether you want to deepen your knowledge of edible and medicinal plants or simply want to enjoy some time outdoors.
We will begin with sensory exercises to awaken ourselves to sound, smell, taste, touch, and vision. Then we will walk around and explore a handful of wild plants, meeting them with our senses and learning how to use them for food and medicine. In addition, Emily will cover principles of ethical wildcrafting and foraging. A refreshing handmade soda or tea will be served.
