About this Event

February 17th - March 24th

Wednesdays from 9am - 1pm

Join local herbalist & nutritionist Emily Sanders for a 6 week outdoor course on Introductory Plant Identification & Ecosystems Tour of Santa Barbara.

During this class you will learn the basics of leaf, flower, and tree identification, as well as the 10 most common edible and poisonous plant families in the area.  Learn over 60 common local plants, how to detect what general plant ecosystem you are in, and what medicinal herbs grow in each one of them.  Our last class we will visit a local farm or nursery to learn the basics of growing & harvesting herbs, so you can start your own herbal garden in your backyard!

This is a 100% outdoor class, with light hiking of up to 2 to 3 miles per class.  Each class will meet at a different location each week.  Schedule, locations and driving directions will be emailed out the week before class starts.

Even though this is an outdoor class, everyone will be wearing face masks, and social distancing will be practiced. We will also be promoting hand washing or sanitizing before and after our walks, to ensure that we keep everyone healthy in our group.

What you will learn:

  • Leaf ID & Chaparral Plants.
  • Tree ID, Riparian & High Elevation Plants.
  • Flower ID & Coastal Sage Scrub Plants.
  • Poisonous Plant Identification & Riparian Plants.
  • Edible Plant Identification, Grassland & Coastal Bluff Plants.
  • Growing Edible & Medicinal Plants & Starting Your Own Herbal Garden.

Each class will meet at a different location each week.

Participants are allowed to attend an additional 2 plant walks for free, so they can get familiar with more herbs in the Santa Barbara area.

​This class is a part of Artemisia Academy's Spring Herbal Apprentice Program Intensive.  Prices for this class are discounted when people sign up for the program as a whole.
