Ethnobotany 101

Part of: Ethnobotany Series

Course description

This course will provide students with an introduction to ethnobotany, which is the study of the relationship between humans and plants. Using examples from First Nations, European and other cultures, students will learn about key traditional plant management practices as well as the philosophical foundations such as reciprocity and stewardship. The field portion of this course will identify key native species and show students first-hand how culturally important plants such as cattail, willow, nettle, camas and others were traditionally cultivated to enhance production and health. Learning in both sections of this course will be hands-on and experiential. This course, while standing on its own, is designed to be the first in a series of 4 hands-on courses that will introduce students to the related subjects of ethnobotany, native food plant cultivation, the ethical forager and basic seed saving.
