Medicinal and Poisonous Plants

People often ask, "If we had to survive in these mountains, what could we eat to survive?" However, the first question should be, "Which plants are poisonous or toxic and should be avoided?" There are a few toxic or potentially lethal plants in our local area, and you could easily learn to identify and avoid them. You'll learn which parts of the plants are "poisonous", and what sorts of symptoms you would get if you were to ingest them (or touch them). Once you know what can kill you, then you can slowly build up your knowledge for the rest of the plants, since there's much more that are helpful than are toxic. We'll explore some medicinal plants and learn how you can safely treat wounds, bruises, sprains, etc. so that you'll be well prepared when the zombie apocalypse starts.
