Repeats? - - No

Herbalist jim mcdonald will be leading participants around the fields and woods surrounding the EAC in Oxford to explore the medicinal virtues, identification, folklore and preparation of many of the common "weeds" and wildflowers we pass by every day. The information presented will be both specific and practical, based on jim's nineteen years experience in gathering, preparing, and using herbal remedies, and provide a basis for participants to incorporate what they have learned into usable skills with which to maintain and restore health.

Participants will receive detailed handouts covering the preparation of herbal remedies, ethical harvesting, toxicity, recommendations for further study and, as always, new information on plants not covered in previous workshops, making the event fruitful for previous participants as well as those new to medicinal herbcraft. Some of the plants we'll cross paths with include Dandelion, Apple, Nettle, Ground Ivy, Plantain & Periwinkle.

jim mcdonald has been practicing the art of herbcraft since 1994, and offers a knowledge of herbalism that blends western folk and indigenous views of healing with the Vitalist traditions of 19th century western herbalism. He has taught classes and workshops throughout Great Lakes bioregion and the US, hosts the website 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.
