My topics are:
Tree and Shrub ID and Medicinal Properties
Learn about the medicinal properties and folklore of at least 10 different trees and shrubs. Take time to connect with trees and shrubs during this plant walk as Erin LaFaive teaches how to identify trees for all seasons. She’ll also discuss ways to “read” tree health and how that relates to harvesting activities.
Harvesting and Drying Herbs
There are many ways to preserve plants for future use. Determining optimal time to harvest herbs and techniques for drying them to maintain peak therapeutic qualities can be tricky. Some herbs need to be dried quickly with added heat while others degrade quickly with that method. Learn which herbs do best with different drying techniques.
