Plant Medicine III ONLINE: Local Herbs, Flowers and Weeds

Plant Medicine III ONLINE: Local Herbs, Flowers and Weeds

In our Plant Medicine Series we study herbs using an in-depth method that includes plant appearance and identification, ecology, traditional and historical medicinal uses and modern understandings. We explore the energetics of each plant one at a time. We follow each plant on a journey to a complete understanding of its roles in human health, and discover possibilities of healing plant relationships. Medicine making techniques will be discussed and demonstrated.


In our April series we turn our attention to herbaceous plants, both native and naturalized (yes, Dandelion!). Important medicines like Stinging Nettles and Yarrow are taught alongside some lesser known plants of the lower elevation riparian valleys, forests, Columbia Gorge and coasts.


Dates: Thursdays April 9, 16, 23, and 30.

Time: 6 - 9 pm

Location: ONLINE via ZOOM, the meeting code number will be emailed to you before the class begins

Cost: $110

(If it becomes possible to offer a tincture tasting packet, there will be an optional additional charge for that, probably only for local Portland area residents.)


Due to concerns over the novel coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2) we have created an online version of this class via live ZOOM video conference. In order to participate in the course at this time you will need to be able to access a computer with internet.
