What's the most important survival skill to know?

Definitely useful plants! Not only can they feed you, but you can use this knowledge in your daily life- healing yourself or friends with herbs, and including healthy, delicious plants into your meals. 

 

Join me on a fun, hands-on hike, learning the uses of over 30 plants in different locations around Arizona!

 

  • Sample delicious wild edibles

  • Learn to heal ailments and injuries with wild local herbs

I worked as a field botanist for USGS for 3 years, and my passion to learn about useful plants have taken me all over the Western United States studying with how native peoples used the plants for healing and food.
