We will then bring these plants into our kitchen-classroom and transform them into food, medicine and various other preparations.  As part of our learning experience, we will prepare and enjoy a primarily “wild” delicious meal influenced by the plants that are in season.  Everyone will make an abundance of preparations to bring home and begin to create their own medicine chests.  In the last part of each class we will focus on a particular organ system, health topic or special project.
