Good information for foragers, gardeners and herbalists to know!

If you’d like to forage in the wild, the first plants you should learn are the ones that kill you. With a healthy respect for these deadly plants, you can forage with more confidence and safety. This class will focus on the identification, toxic symptoms and background of the five most poisonous plants in Washington with ample visuals to back it up. The plants are: poison hemlock, Indian hellebore, water hemlock, larkspur and foxglove. We’ll also briefly discuss some other toxic plants to watch out for including bittersweet nightshade and creeping buttercup. You’ll come away from this class with a solid base of information and some tools to help you identify these plants when you come upon them.
This class will be taught live on zoom using a powerpoint for visuals. Come ready to take notes and ask questions. I’ll send the powerpoint after class so you can have a good reference for the future.
