Medicinal plants have been in use since time immemorial, and at some time nearly every known plant has been tried medicinally. Some medicinal plants are found in the wild state only, but most
are cultivated. Examples of several grow in the San Francisco Botanical Garden. This class will focus on both common and unusual medicines and the source plants growing right in SFBG, explaining horticultural care as well as fascinating extraction methods and specific uses.

This class can be bundled with Mary Harden's afternoon botanical art class.

In the afternoon, join Mary L. Harden (course 213-166) to expand on your knowledge of medicinal plants. Students will create scientifically accurate drawings in various media. The class will use a variety of techniques to render plants in ways both correct and aesthetically pleasing. The techniques are applicable to quick sketches in the field as well as creating detailed drawings in the studio. Classes will provide supportive critique of student work as well as well as time to work on drawings.

All levels are welcome.

$10 materials fee payable to instructor at beginning of first class.

These classes have been specifically designed to be taken together, complimenting and enhancing each other.

Bundled price $260/$300 member/nonmember
