HOUSTON’S EDIBLE MEDICINAL WINTER WEEDS
MON. 1/24/2022 @ 7:00 PM - 8:00 PM
LIVE ZOOM CLASS
DR. MARK “MERRIWETHER” VORDERBRUGGEN
$20

Even in winter, Houston offers a smorgasbord of wild, nutritious, edible weeds! Join local Houstonian (and internationally recognized!) expert, author, and teacher of edible and medicinal wild plants, Mark "Merriwether" Vorderbruggen, Ph.D. as he discusses where to find, how to identify, and how to use his favorite wild winter plants. These weeds don't require a deep excursion into the woods - you should be able to find many of them growing in your yard! 

PRESENTER: Mark "Merriwether" Vorderbruggen, Ph.D. is often (somewhat) jokingly described as a scientist raised by wolves. Having a M.S. in medicinal chemistry and a Ph.D. in physical organic chemistry, he brings science into the world of wild edible and medicinal plants. But his true love is plants and the miracles they contain. Since 2008 his website www.foragingtexas.com has been one of the top wild edible/medicinal plant sites on the internet; he's written countless foraging articles for a wide variety of magazines; taught hundreds of foraging walkabouts; and wrote the acclaimed book Idiot's Guide Foraging (available on Amazon). In 2020 he made the biggest leap of his life to become the medicine man for Medicine Man Plant Co. where he can finally bring forth the ancient plants that can still help with modern issues. Check out these his fusion of science- & traditional herbal products at www.medicinemanplantco.com
