Using Wild Plants in your Life

May 7, 2015 @ 6:30 pm - 7:45 pm

photoSam Liebl will speak about his quest to thrive alongside wild plants in every season. Drawing on historical accounts, current ethno-botanical research, and his daily first-hand experience, Sam has begun to know the plants of the Upper Arkansas and San Luis valleys as food, tools, and medicine. In this talk he will discuss how you, too, can responsibly use wild plants in your own life

Presenter Sam Liebl has dedicated himself to finding a sustainable way to live in the Western United States. To that end he has become a student of indigenous skills–how to feed, clothe, heal, and shelter himself as humans have for 95% of our time on this planet. Sam is an instructor at the Crestone-based Earth Knack School. He and his wife Jillian teach survival and primitive skills in Salida, Crestone, and around the country. They write about their life at SamAndJillian.com.

The cost of the class is $10 for GARNA members, $12 for non-members.
