Vancouver's Leader in Transition toward Strong, Resilient, Complete Communities
The F-word, an essential element of Herbalism
or Why Gathering and Making Your Own Herbal Remedies is Important
Have I got a treat for you! I'm really excited to share this with you because it's hot off the presses. Well, it's hot out of the editing room...
As I said a year ago when we released Episode #1 - Nettles, the editing has been slow. But I think you'll agree that these videos are great. My co-conspirator, Angela, has done a fantastic job from her camera work right through to the finished product.
In this episode, we visit my community garden in east Vancouver to see what wild edibles we can find outside of the garden plots.
In practically no time at all, we found 7 wild edibles! (that you'll find in practically every community garden in town)
So yes, as you've likely caught on to at this point...
the F-word is Forage.
And just before we get to the video, I want to share the top 7 reasons that foraging for food and medicine is extremely important.
7 advantages of foraged foods and medicines...
You can chew on these points as you watch this 8 minute video.
And if you'd like to share a foraging story, I'd love to hear (and so would everyone else). Please share that here.
"Didn't I hear something about a Course that Teaches Foraging?"
Yes, you did.
And if you liked that little taste, you'll love the Herbal Integration Course. In this course, you'll learn about many aspects of wild foods and medicines. You'll gather them, eat them, ferment them, cook them, make medicines with them and teach others about them.
You'll also learn how to use to heal using the medicines you handcrafted.
