Join us for the only module for the Plant Identification portion of The Dancing Herbalist's Home Herbalist Study Program. This four hour course will give you the skills to use a flora or other plant identification text to identify plants local to you that can be used for your own medicine or other uses. We will not be discussing any medicinal uses of plants in this class, nor will we be solely focusing on identifying medicinal plants. We will however be focusing on identifying plants in North America. The techniques used in this class can be used for identifying plants on other continents. We will be presenting this whole 4 hour course on one day in multiple segments. Please be aware that all segments are on the same day. Segment 1 will focus on plant parts necessary for identification. This terminology will be essential for the remaining segments. Segment 2 will focus on the use of Newcomb's Wildflower Guide to learn the basics of using a plant identification key. This book is recommended to purchase prior to the class but is not necessary to participate. We will also be using an advanced plant identification 'flora' (identification book) to sample more complicated identification techniques. We will be using 'Plants of Pennsylvania' for our sample flora text. Segment 3 will focus on plant families that are commonly used in herbal medicine and what features of these plants are commonly used to identify them. Join us live, practice identification of fun and interesting plants, and learn some new tools you may not have yet known to make sure you are reaching for the best medicine.
