Wildcrafting Winter Weeds

Join herbalist Jim McDonald for a walk round winter woods and fields to explore the many plants still offering medicine even as they sleep under their snowy blanket. We’ll discuss both medicial uses and how to use your senses to tell if something is medicinally potent (even if all the books and websites you’ve ever read say you need to pick it up in the summertime). Dress warm and wear boots suitable for walking in unshovelled snow. Come learn how to identify and collect medicinal plants in the winter, how to use one’s senses to assess their strength/virtues, and use them safely & effectively.

This presentation will have items available for purchase.

He has taught classes and workshops throughout Great Lakes bioregion and the US, hosts the website www.herbcraft.org and is currently writing (alternately) “A Great Lakes Herbal” and “Foundational Herbcraft”. Jim is a community herbalist, a manic wildcrafter and medicine maker, and has been an ardent student of the most learned teachers of herbcraft… the plants themselves.

In this article, you attempt to give finish data about this plant. A few people did botches when they developing this plant where you can get custom papers and they didn't get the great outcome. This entire data is great and you share the excellent data.
