Summer Guerilla Foraging and Field Medicine Making, The Human Path San Antonio Campus, Sunday, 14. July 2019

Whether you are on a long camping trip, a remote location without your usual pantry items at hand, or even in a post disaster situation; learning to ethically wildcraft and forage what you need for medicine and wild foods is an important skill set while on the move. This one-day class will include a field plant walk, some ethical wildcrafting, and then an exercise in preserving and working with harvested medicinals in a field environment for summer months.
Students will learn:

Working with seasonally available plants
How to ethically wildcraft
What does being a steward of the land mean?
When should you not harvest or forage?
How to safely identify summer edibles
Good S. Texas field guides to use
Preservation in the field
What is guerrilla foraging and why would a lower profile be important?
Foraging tools to have in your pack
Simple medicinal preparations in the field
Harvesting after an environmental disaster – cautions and concerns
How to keep your medicine mobile

At the end of this information-packed class, students will go home with several harvested and prepared medicinals, handouts of wild edible recipes and a mini field guide of plants to watch for in urban and remote environments in our area. You will also go home with a mobile harvesting kit to keep in your daypack.
This course will be offered 3 times a year – one for each growing season and focusing on bio-regional medicinals and edibles in season. This is a requirement for the Female Medic program.
