As Spring does a dance between snow & hail storms, chorus frogs and singing birds, we begin to ask; is it time to go outside yet? The budding of branches and sprouting of plants reminds us of the abundance of plant medicine. Come join us for a walk in the woods where we will be focusing our attention on plant forms and identification, seasonal harvests and local plant medicine. In this class we will be working with roots, buds, barks, conifer leaves and lichens.
Participants will learn folklore and preparation of many common evergreen plants and lichens that we pass by every day. They will also receive detailed handouts covering preparation of herbal remedies, ethical harvesting, toxicity, and further resources.
This class is intended to deepen your connection to the plant world at a time when everything is beginning to burst into life. It will help you sharpen your senses through observation and connection with natural cycles of plants.
