Brigitte will share her expertise on wild, edible plants of Colorado. Learn to identify common plants you may have once regarded as "weeds." See how many of these wild allies have served our ancestors for food, medicine, fiber, and art. Jim Gibson will share his expertise on Mycology- The study of Fungi, is a strange and creative world that lives almost everywhere. Fungi are evolutionarily more closely related to animals than to plants, and their uses are both complex and surprising. Althea Godfrey will present on beauty in native landscapes and explore the role of restoration and development of exotic and native landscaping practiced today.
