Walk on the Wild Side: Foraging and Herbal Magic for Spring

May 11 @ 9:30 am - 3:00 pm


May 11th, 2024

Course Description: Join master herbalist Gigi Stafne to connect with the unfolding, blooming energies of spring. This class expands on previous “Walk on the Wild Side” offerings to combine a morning outdoors with an afternoon hand-crafting seasonal herbal medicines.

As spring unfolds, meander the forests and fields of the Amador Hill Farm, exploring wild-growing medicinal and edible plants and their healing traditions and cultural and ecological importance. Along the medicine trail, Gigi will weave plant wisdom together with ways to center ourselves and reconnect with our true wild natures, and explore the connections between herbal medicine, collective healing, and grassroots environmental conservation.

The class will then return indoors to learn fundamental herbalism principles and make several herbal medicines to take home to nourish family and community. Hand crafting herbal medicines empowers individuals and communities to care for themselves and each other using knowledge passed on by the hands of countless generations that came before. There is a $15 materials fee paid to the instructor.

We encourage participants to also register for Gigi’s Summer and Autumn “Walk on the Wild Side” offerings to experience three seasons of herbal medicine and magic with WEI this year.

What to Bring: Plant journal or notebook; Comfortable walking shoes – trails include uneven terrain; Dress for the weather; Your lunch, snacks and water bottle.
