Outdoor Safety for Plant Lovers
This one day workshop is specifically designed for the herbal, foraging and botany communities.
Its goal is to give you the ability and confidence to explore away from the crowds and find those special places in the great outdoors when wildcrafting, foraging and botanizing.
The focus of the day is on education and empowerment – not on entertainment, suffering or endurance.
All participants will have access to food, water, a pit toilet and their vehicles throughout the day.
Details on location, what to bring and how to dress will be sent after your registration is received.
Registration closes Wednesday, October 23
Location: Outdoors at 7,000’ in the ponderosa forest just outside Flagstaff.
Date: Saturday, October 26, 2019
Time: We begin at 9:00 am and go until approx. 4-5 pm with a break for lunch

Holiday Salve Making
I am pleased to once again offer this annual fundraiser in support of the top quality programs at Willow Bend Environmental Education Center in Flagstaff.
From their site…
Herbalist Mike Masek from the Forager’s Path is back just in time for winter and the holidays, to lead the annual Salve Making Workshop.
This workshop shows you how to make unique and useful gifts for friends, family and yourself!
The workshop will focus on two salve making processes.
One method uses resin from the local Pinon tree.
The other method is used for leaves and flowers in general.
All participants will get hands-on experience and take home samples of both salve types.
Join us for this informative class that shows you how to make:
in your own kitchen.
These herb-based skin care products and techniques have been used for 20+ years in my own herbal practice. Using only the best quality ingredients, these products surpass any available off the store shelf.
Each participant will take home a small container of the lotion and salve made during the workshop.
Date: Saturday, January 18, 2020
Time: 9:30 – noon
