Spring Wild Medicinal Plant Walk with Herbalist & Author Maria Noël Groves

May 30 @ 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm EDT

$12.00 – $15.00

Learn how to identify common medicinal plants in early spring, with a particular focus on tree, weed, and root medicinal and edible perennials. We will discuss identification resources and tips as well as wildcrafting ethics, as well as medicinal benefits, harvesting tips, and cautions for some common wild plants. Potential plants we may see and discuss include celandine, burdock, horsetail, dandelion, white pine, as well as the “at risk” plant goldthread and its medicinal analog, the invasive barberry. We’ll likely meet (and not touch!) poison ivy. We’ll also discuss reasons why you might not want to wildcraft or forage “trendy” plants and fungi like ramps, ghost pipe, or chaga, as well as special considerations for invasive medicinal species like autumn olive, multiflora rose, Japanese knotweed, and barberry. Rain or shine – please come prepared to walk outdoors, for the weather, bugs, and ticks. Cameras and notebooks recommended.

Maria will be selling and signing her books after the talk – Body into Balance, Grow Your Own Herbal Remedies, and the NEWLY RELEASED Herbal Remedies for Sleep.
