Herbal Remedies & Wild Medicinal Plants Workshop

How would you respond if I told you that today all the local pharmacies were having a tremendous sale - everything is free!! Well, you probably wouldn't believe me. But its true! Really! And not just today! The natural world is still home to our original source of medicine.

These precious plants are literally bursting with nutritious and healing powers that still beat anything you can find in a store. The research has been done. Hard science and native wisdom agree that some of the very best medicines are literally waiting at our feet for us to connect back with them.

In our herbal remedies workshop you will learn how to use a variety of local wild plants for medicine. The workshop covers:

  • Plant identification
  • Safe and ethical harvesting & caretaking
  • Differentiating poisonous plants
  • Creating different types of herbal medicine

    • Compresses/fomentations
    • Infusions/decoctions
    • Using fresh wild plants for first aid situations
