Sulphur Mtn. Nature Hike on Sunday, February 7
Please join me to kick off the 40th anniversary year of Herb Walks with Lanny Kaufer as I lead a Nature Hike on West Sulphur Mountain Trail in the Casitas Springs area between Ventura and Ojai.

We will identify wild native and naturalized plants in riparian, oak woodland, and coastal sage scrub communities and discuss their indigenous and modern uses for food, medicine, crafts, landscaping and more.

There will also be opportunities to sample edible wild greens like the Black Mustard shown above, learn about ethical foraging, and, hopefully, see signs of the animals that inhabit the area.

On this walk, we will identify, demonstrate and discuss the many uses of wild plants for foragers, herbalists, and naturalists seeking out plants for food, first aid, home remedies, survival, crafts, ceremony and more. Poisonous plants will also be identified.

Tellur teaching on the trail in Matiliija Canyon: March, 2015
2-Day Edible and Medicinal Plants of Ventura County with Tellur Fenner: Sat.-Sunday, March 12-13

Thanks to a unique combination of Mediterranean climate, coastal influence, rugged topography, and mountain streams flowing to the Pacific Ocean, Ventura County has a world-class diversity of plants within a relatively small geographic range. Many of them have edible and medicinal value.

Please join us for an encore visit by a very special guest from Northern California, herbalist Tellur Fenner. Due to the great popularity of his first local field workshop last year, he is returning for a two-day exploration of the diverse array of both edible and medicinal plants found growing in our bioregion.

PLEASE NOTE: Early-bird pricing available until Feb. 20
