Herbal Medicine For The Apocalypse
with Elokin Orton-Cheung
Wednesday, March 23, 6:30-8:30PM
Homestead Apothecary, 486 49th Street,  #C, Oakland

In this class you will learn about working with native plants to help you survive most apocalypse scenarios - from being lost in the woods, to hiding out from a potential zombie outbreak (you never know!). You will come away with an understanding of how to treat first aid situations and forage food with 20 plants you can find right here in the East Bay hills. For inspiration we will look at classic sci-fi literature on potential post-apocalypse worlds where herbal medicine has played a vital role in survival. As a bonus, we will go over how to pack your own emergency kit and create an earthquake plan.

A big sci-fi geek, trained Wilderness First Responder, and Community Herbalist, Elokin Orton-Cheung of Shooting Star Botanicals has over ten years of experience leading trips in the woods and working with native plants as medicine.
