*Their common names
*Scientific nomencalure
*Historic medicinal uses
*Historic food uses
*Key features used to identify
*Possible mimics
*Any nutritional value of said plant (excellent knowledge for backpackers/hikers).

***You will also learn possible ways to prepare and use said plants in recipes at home or restaurant, and what type of environment each plant needs in order to grow and thrive.

This course is PERFECT for homesteaders, backpackers/hikers, weekend campers, vegans/vegetariians, hollistic medicine enthusiasts, preppers, survivalists, and even CHEFS!
