Join experienced herbalist William Broen for an exciting garden walk and presentation featuring medicinal and edible plants native to California. Participants will learn both traditional and modern plant uses of approximately 30 species, as well as relevant folklore.

Broen is a bioregionally focused herbalist and natural products educator. He has spent most of his adult life studying medicinal and edible plants that grow in California and the Western United States. Largely self-taught, Broen has also completed a four-year program at the Pacific School of Herbal Medicine in Oakland, California, which focuses on education of medicinal plants. He currently works as an educator for a natural products brokerage and leads educational walks for schools, garden clubs, and other diverse groups.

Presenting throughout California, Broen shares his knowledge and enthusiasm with emphases on how humans have interacted with plants throughout history, how our senses often tell us much about the plants around us, and how a plant’s survival adaptations are often related to the ways they affect our bodies. Broen relays his knowledge in a format that is enjoyable, easy to understand, and encourages questioning and discussion among participants.

Program is limited to 20 participants. Please bring a sack lunch or snack and a water bottle.
