Class # 123
Class Title Simple Home Remedies: Plant ID Intensives
Instructor Crystal Hamby
Details Do you wonder how to properly identify plants growing out your front door, in your neighborhood, or out in the surrounding woodlands? Are you curious about the medicinal properties of some local herbs that you keep running into? Do you ever wonder how to make your own herbal medicine? These herbal intensives are designed to introduce students to the practice of identifying native plant species in the PNW. The intensives will cover the foundations of plant identification; will teach students how to use a flora for keying out plants to family, genus and species; will cover the morphological traits specific to a group of families prevalent in the PNW; and then will take students into the field on herb walks to identify specific species of plants found in the families covered. We will discuss the traits used to identify our medicinal species, how to sustainably wildcraft plants for medicinal use, how to use plants as medicine via learning about the materia medica of the plant, and we will explore the many methods used to make medicine from our medicinal plants.

Come explore your environment and learn about the wondrous herbs it has to offer!
Crystal's knowledge stems from her love of and devotion to all things green, and from her education in herbal medicine. Crystal holds a bachelor’s of science in Herbal Sciences from Bastyr University. Currently she is an adjunct faculty member at Bastyr, where she teaches classes on Herbal Medicine Making, Plant Identification, and Herbal First Aid. Her herbal consulting business, Green Blessings, helps her clients integrate herbal medicine into their daily lives for acute and chronic care.

Plant ID Morphology: 4hr class: covering stem, bud, root, leaf, flower, inflorescence, fruit Sat, June 25th, 12-4pm $50

Learn the basic skills that will help you to be able to identify a plant by using a regional flora (book used to key a plant out to its species). This class will focus on how to determine the morphological traits of a plant by exploring what type of stem, bud, root, leaf, flower, inflorescence, and fruit a plant is expressing. By learning about the morphological traits of a plant we can begin to fairly accurately key a plant into what family it belongs in, what genus it is housed in, and what specific type of species it is. Learn your morphology and you’ll be well on your road to identifying plants in the wild.

Plant ID Family Traits: 4hrs covering the following families- Rosaceae, Lamiaceae, Asteraceae, Apiaceae, Ericaceae Sat, July 16th, 12-4pm $50

Plants are classified into what family they belong in first, then what specific genus they are housed in, and further into what unique species they are. When we learn the basic morphological traits of a family we can then move forward to keying a plant out into what genus and species it is. In this class we will explore the key morphological traits of the main families prevalent in the PNW, which provide us with a wealth of food and medicine. We will also be expanding our medicinal knowledge of the plants belonging to the families covered by exploring the therapeutic qualities associated with each family.

Plant ID Herb Walk: 4hrs Sat. July 23rd, 12-4pm $50

Let’s take a walk in the woods to discover the wealth of medicinal plants it has to offer! This herb walk will be focused on exploring the medicinal plants found in the families covered in the Family Traits class. We will learn how to apply our morphological training to identify our native plants into what family they belong in, we will explore the medicinal properties of the plants highlighted on our walk, and we will discuss the best method for harvesting each herb and for preparing the herbs into medicine for our personal medicine chests. You will be amazed by the medicinal properties of plants you have already met and will be tickled by getting to know some new plant allies as well.
