Tree Medicine

Tree Medicine

About this Workshop

We maintain a close relationship with trees, whose giant limbs stretch up towards the sky, mirroring our own physical form. This workshop will focus on getting to know local trees in depth. We will learn about the life cycle of trees, key identification features, edible and medicinal uses, respectful harvesting practices, and general guidelines for tree care. We will also learn techniques for building meaningful relationships with trees throughout the season

This workshop will include a demonstration in making a healing salve made from tree resin, which you will be able to take home.
