Weeds are fierce, tenacious and resilient, defying the controls of humans at every turn. They are also powerfully medicinal! This plant walk will discuss plant ID and botany, harvesting guidelines, medicinal preparations, and medicinal uses of many of our beloved northeast weeds.
Bioregional Herbalism & Local Medicine
A part of the Herbalism in the Pioneer Valley Free Workshop Series
Friday August 11th
Hungry Ghost Bread Gardens- Northampton, MA
Many of us are familiar with the local food movement, but what about the local medicine movement? Jade will discuss Bioregional Herbalism- the practice of working with the medicinal plants that grow abundantly in your area- and talk about a few of her favorite local herbs. She will also share about her model for the low-cost community herbal clinic she has been running at Blue Dragon Apothecary in Greenfield since 2013, as Health Justice and Bioregional Herbalism are quite intertwined!
