Hi, Class! I am so pleased to participate in this course. I have wanted this sort of content delivered on-line in a community setting for several years. My husband and I live a 20 minute flight from the nearest road (N of Anchorage, S of Denali). My science background is weak and I really want to improve my botanical knowledge to support my interest in foraging for food and making home remedies with local plants. Classes in Master Gardening , Permaculture, and Herbalism have taught me a great deal, but I want a firmer academic grounding. Thanks, Steffi!
Welcome Laura, I hope you take away lots of interesting botanical info from this course. I would advise you to check out the ethnobotany videos Sarah Betcher produced. They can be found under resources on this website.
It’s nice to be in class with you again. I’m looking forward to your posts
