with Ricky Bratz, Herbalist at Cazimi Healing
Date: Sunday, May 16, 2021
Time: 1:30 PM-4:30 PM
Fee: $45 ($41 Members)
Unless there are severe storms, this class will take place rain or shine. About 45 minutes of instruction will take place in our Joslin Combined Classroom and the remainder of the class period will be spent outdoors.
Explore the beauty of native southeastern medicinal plants through field identification. Using the expansive resources of the NCBG display gardens and the Piedmont Nature Trails behind the Garden, students take in the abundant medicine that our local flora has to offer. Topics include field identification, ethical gathering and harvesting, history and lore of each plant, therapeutic and medicinal uses, and preparations.
UNC Community Standards
We are taking extensive precautions to make sure the Garden is a safe place to visit, and we need your help to keep it safe for everyone. When registering, you must agree to abide by the UNC Community Standards. Read the UNC Community Standards here.
In brief, please follow these practices:
- Before leaving home for class, check for symptoms using the COVID-19 screening checklist. Do not attend class if you are experiencing any symptom(s) indicated on the screening checklist or have knowledge of a recent exposure to someone who has tested positive. If you are not able to attend class for this reason, we will offer you a full refund as course credit or to your credit card.
- Watch your distance and remain 6 feet apart from others.
- Bring a mask with you. Wear a mask at all times indoors and when you are unable to maintain a 6′ distance outdoors due to path widths or other unavoidable circumstances.
- Wash your hands often.
By doing these things, you are doing your part to keep others safe both on campus and in our local communities.
