Herb Walks with Lanny Kaufer are interpretive walks and hikes with an emphasis on edible and medicinal plants, those classified as “herbs” for their culinary and medicinal properties. We discuss and demonstrate the plants’ indigenous and modern uses for food, home remedies, botanical medicine, survival, landscaping, camping, crafts, ceremony and more. This type of learning cannot be done accurately with books, photos and web images alone. You must engage with the plants in their home environment with all your senses to learn the “language of the plants.”
Lanny is the author of “Medicinal Herbs of California: A Field Guide to Common Healing Plants“ (Falcon Guides, 2021).
