✿Wildness

I joined a fundraising event for a local high school in September.  This fundraising event was unique that we hiked Wildcat Gorge Trail at Tilden Park to learn about wild plants.  
The purpose was to learn to identify and use common wild plants with used for food, first aid, medicine or poison etc...  

           
Mugwort is used for dream pillows to help increase our dream memory.



Yerba Buena makes delicious tea. it's a mint family.


As we hike, the guide told us which ones are poison and which are edible. There were a lot of plants to remember so I made memo and took lots of photos...  Unfortunately, it's hard to remember everything so I want to hike the same trail again to see how much I can recognise.
