Gathering plants from the wild, otherwise known as wildcrafting, provides many benefits. It connects us to the natural world and the changing of the seasons, and it connects us to our ancestral heritage. It is empowering, plus it also helps ensure that our medicines are fresh, sustainable and of high quality. In addition, wildcrafting can be ecofriendly and cost effective.
In this class we will discuss guidelines on how to carefully and conscientiously collect medicines. We will then go out and discover the incredible healing power of a few of the wild plants that are growing locally. Individuals will get to take home handouts that include some of my favorite recipes!
