Full Day

Minimum Enrollment: 10

In this course, you will explore how humans and nature are intertwined, not only for food and medicine, but also through creative, cultural, and spiritual practices. You can expect to learn about plant anatomy and functions, and identify local native plants and their uses, including their medicinal properties. Additionally, you will spend time outdoors and engage in a variety of creative projects, like watercolor painting, nature art, ceramics, natural dyes, and indigenous and traditional art forms. 

The course will culminate with an art exhibition of your work highlighting the symbiotic relationship between humans and plants.
