This first class in our four-part series will explore how our predecessors foraged, gathered and harvested local wild botanicals - more commonly known as 'weeds' - and used them for food and medicine. Without easy access to professional medical help, they counted on flowers, leaves, roots, bark, berries, bulbs... whatever grew locally in their region each season to keep themselves healthy and nourished.
The healing and edible plants they found underfoot right here in Warren/Sussex County are still abundant and just as eager to help us today! No matter where you live, the wild summer botanicals growing in full force all around you are calling to be harvested and purposed for your benefit. Take care of the land, and it will take care of you - through the hands of time!
In this class, Donna Reynolds of Willow Moon Herbals, will guide us in an herbal walk - citing plant identification and it’s properties for medicine and/or for our food! Sturdy footwear or boots recommended!
