Are the plants in the course relevant to where I live?
We intentionally chose common plants that grow in a variety of locations and/or are readily available from grocery stores and apothecaries. Assuredly many of these plants will grow near you. However, it is expected that some of the plants don’t grow near you. We also consider these plants as stepping stones for you to find additional plants near you. For that, we highly recommend getting a plant field guide for your area.
