Dandelion Herbal Center offers classes and field trips for herb students ranging from the beginner interested primarily in basic herbal crafting techniques to advanced students seeking to enhance their careers in complementary medicine.
Janes lifelong love affair with medicinal plants finds a perfect setting here in the magnificent coastal mountains of Northern California. From pristine tidepools to lush wetlands and the sacred majesty of local redwoods, we are blessed with a glorious abundance of herbs to admire and study.
Jane Bothwell has lovingly photographed over 40 plants,
carefully labelled them with their common as well as
botanical names. Our hope is that you enjoy seeing and
identifying the many plants that you encounter in your
outdoor adventures. You are encouraged to research and
learn the many characteristics and benefits of each one.
