The twisting red branches and "little apple" clusters of the manzanita tree are a common sight for Montalvo's hikers. From harvesting to drinking, participants will be shown how to prepare manzanita cider from the berries, which are three times higher in antioxidants than blueberries, and manzanita tea - a traditional remedy for poison oak.
Space is limited. Contact the Box Office to RSVP at 408-961-5858 10am-4pm Monday-Friday

This workshop is presented as part of Owen Driggs' project for Art on the Grounds 2013, Mapping Biointimacy. Using digital mapping and GPS technologies alongside such more traditional interpretive strategies as signage, tours, and workshops, Mapping Biointimacy supports experiences of the natural world as a network of intimate relationships.
