Online Class Descriptions

 HH online   when Spain held California   HH online 

California Herbalism in the Days of Zorro!   HH online 

Three lectures. For those of us who grew up with the Disney version of Zorro, Guy Williams will always be the man behind the mask. Antonio Banderas was only a pale imitation.) Part story, part herbal primer, this online class covers the uses of herbs when Spanish California was becoming Hispanic California…a time when the Spanish province had to be self sufficient, and in doing so, developed an independent culture. For the herbalist with a taste for the historical; this was a time when European and Native healing had melded into something unique.

Guerilla Herbalism: Healing On the Street  HH online 

Eight lessons. Offered for the first time online in 2013, this class covers the techniques of street herbalism. For over a decade Charles Garcia walked the streets of Richmond in the guise of a homeless person, treating the sick, the demented, and the dying. His knowledge of street life (and death) is unsurpassed. Learn to set herbal caches, plant secret urban gardens, treat the sick with a minimum of supplies, avoid police detection, plan for violent weekend (HINT: think sports!) and eventually return home in one piece.

NOT for the weak of stomach or the idealistic. This is gritty life on the street herbalism.   NO SLACKERS.   If you miss two lessons you are dropped from the course. You must respond with questions or comments.
