Honoring Our Herbal Heritage Medicinal Plant Walk- Penn Forest Natural Burial Park

Herbal medicine is the legacy of our Ancestors.  Each time we plant a seed, prepare a salad, or brew tea for a head cold we walk in our elder's footsteps.   The language of herbal medicine is the medicine of the people, transmitted to us through the ages.  Let us celebrate our herbal heritage by walking with the plants on Halloween!  In Celtic pagan traditions Halloween is called Samhain (pronounced sow-win).  It is known as the beginning of winter, the dark days, and a time where the spirits of the dead could return to the earth.  This is also the time to honor our Ancestors, those who have lived before us, as well as traditions passed down to us. 

The wheel of the year has turned and in the plant world, the green ones are going to sleep.  This is the time of Root Medicine, working with what lies underneath the ground.  Roots of all sorts are harvested this time of year, dandelion and burdock are the most well known. We will discuss how to harvest roots and use them for medicine, and how to make fire cider, which is a traditional herbal remedy used to support the immune system during the dark times of winter. 

The Herbal Heritage Medicinal Plant Walk will take place at Penn Forest Natural Burial Park in Verona, PA.  Plant walks are $30.  They are two hours, rain or shine. Participants must be able to provide their own transportation. Please feel free to bring a photo of a person in your family who has passed that was perhaps a gardener, farmer, or herbalist. We will be celebrating our ancestors who have known the green ones through story and ceremony, as well.

To book, please message me through the contact page or at my Etsy shop.
