This is a 9-session class. 

This free class is sponsored by School of Earth, Energy, and Environmental Sciences.

Enjoy a warm cup of tea, freshly brewed from herbs harvested that morning. While enjoying your tea, your instructor Kathy will highlight the many health promoting benefits that weeding your garden can provide. You will also learn weed identification, what weeds can tell you about your soil, and which weeds are edible. After tea, we will do some gentle stretching and then begin weeding. Enjoy the meditative quality of weeding to create order and balance in the garden, and in one's thoughts. Participate in the beauty and abundance of harvest season this autumn at the O'Donohue Family Stanford Educational Farm.

PLEASE NOTE: No class 11/2 and 11/23. Wear loose, comfortable clothes and dress for the weather.

Instructor: Kathy Siemers. Kathy is a Lab Manager in the Biology Department and an avid gardener. She’s been "weeding for wellness" and a harvest volunteer at the Farm for over a year and loves sharing the good-for-the-soul spirit of the Farm.
