Human Nature Series: Seasonal Foraging for Common Medicinal Plants

When: November 15, 2020, 2:00 pm – 3:30 pm
Add to Calendar: iCal | Google

We have been utilizing medicinal plants for their natural therapeutic properties since the beginning of human history. Although not utilized in our mainstream medicines of today, these plants are still used in traditional medicine practices around the globe. Many of the wild plants we now refer to as “weeds” are from seeds intentionally carried here by immigrants and colonists representing a diversity of transplanted cultural uses.

Join us on Zoom on November 15 as local herbalist, Jennifer Tucker, teaches us how to identify medicinal and wild food plants that are commonly found this time of year, shares their medicinal properties, and how/when she harvests, preserves and prepares them to benefit our health.
