Learn to Identify Local Wild Herbs

Join us for a one-day field trip, led by Rob Hawley of Taos Herb Company. Students will learn the use of local plants as medicine, as food as well as their names in English, Spanish and Latin on these fun and fascinating day trips in the beautiful Sangre de Cristo mountains surrounding Taos, New Mexico

The cost for a one-day Herb Walk with Rob is $75.00. Advance registration is required at our retail store along with a $30 non-refundable deposit.

Space is limited. For more details call 575-758-1991.

Live far away and can't make it into the store prior to the walk? Give us a call at 1-800-353-1991 about sending in a money order to hold your spot.

We will meet at Taos Herb Co. at 8:30 AM and will depart from there no later than 9:00 AM. Please be on time!

We will carpool to save gas and keep the group together. We will return to Taos Herb Company around 3:00pm.

Please bring:

  • Your lunch
  • Notebook & pen
  • Camera (if you like)
  • Scissors or pruning shears
  • Sun hat
  • Sun screen
  • Rain gear
  • Scotch tape

Do bring rain gear as rain rarely holds up an herb walk.

If you would like to do some harvesting yourself, you should bring:

  • Small shovel
  • Paper bags
  • Rubber bands

This workshop promises to give you a rare opportunity to see common herbs growing in the wild, and to learn their uses and methods of extraction.  Rob guides participants into forests and high deserts to locate such herbs as osha, poleo, arnica, nettles, mullein, valerian, burdock, and vervain.

Methods of ethical harvesting, drying and processing of wild medicinal and edible plants will be covered.

Arnica and other beautiful plants like Yarrow, Mullein, Aspen, barberry and Uva Ursi grow wild in the Rocky Mountains.
