Laura Emerson, intro

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!


Regards, Laura


  1. 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.
