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. 

No prerequisites.



Our intention is to respect plant and regional individuality. We also respect individual learning and teachings. With that in mind, we encourage you to consult with an experienced authority in your locality to discuss any plant decisions you make related to health and well-being.
