Making Medicine from Wild Plants

Thursday, July 3, 2014 - 1:00pm to 3:00pm
There are many plants growing wild in the north country that have medicinal and healing properties. Some plants speed the repair of damaged tissue, some soothe the nerves and others improve circulation, fight infections and nourish the immune system. Using wild plants in medicine has a long history, both in traditional and present day medicine. Come spend a few hours learning how to identify, prepare and use these valuable local resources. You will learn the medicinal properties of several wild plants and learn how to make herbal teas, poultices and maybe even tinctures!
