Those Amazing Plants
Have you ever sat in your backyard and looked around at the various plants growing there? Or maybe you’re a gardener and as you’ve pulled out a “weed” you’ve looked at it and wondered about it. Many of the beautiful flowers around you are also very beneficial medicine, and many “weeds” such as dandelion, nettle, and plantain have very useful spots in your medicine cabinet. Walk with clinical herbalist Bonnie Kreckow and learn about the plants that grow right in your yard. Attendees will identify plants to heal mosquito bites in minutes, plants to heal wounds and burns within days, and many others. Meet at the co-op.
