Limina series: Medicine in the Garden with Larkin Forestheart, June 28, 2020

Join Larkin of Forest Heart Botanicals for a 3-hour class on growing and using medicinal plants. We’ll look together at ways to unlearn exploitative relationships with the land. We’ll talk about the ethics of growing a medicine garden. We’ll cover how to grow, when to harvest, how to use and what types of medicine can be made from each plant.

Plants that may be covered and are growing in Larkin’s medicine gardens include: skullcap, motherwort, valerian, chamomile, yellow dock, blue vervain, elder, angelica, lemon balm, wood betony, arnica, peppermint, oats, plantain, calendula, marshmallow, echinacea, passionflower, black cohosh & ashwagandha.

The class will be hosted live with recorded segments embedded within it, and there will be lots of time for Q&A.  A download version of the session will be available for all participants, including those who can’t make it live.  Registration will close 30 minutes prior to the class.

Date & time: Sunday, June 28, 1-4pm PDT.

This live video offering is part of the Limina Virtual Workshop series, an online connection of ancestral skills. Born from Crowsnest Wildcraft’s annual Limina Gathering, which was postponed from 2020 to 2021 to respond to COVID-19, we are taking our offerings online over the course of several months. Individuals may register for one or as many workshops as you like. Proceeds go directly to the facilitator and to Limina Gathering.

To register: purchase your spot on a sliding scale by choosing your price. That’s it!

You will receive first a confirmation email and later a follow-up email from the facilitator prior to the workshop.

Interpeting a sliding scale:
$30-35: If you are able to pay for “wants” and spend little time worried about securing necessities in your life, this price is for you.
$20-30: If you are struggling to conquer debt or build savings or move away from paycheck to paycheck living but have access to steady income and are not spending most of your time thinking about meeting basic needs such as food, shelter, medical care, child care, etc., you belong here.
$15-20: If you struggle to maintain access to needs such as health care, housing, food, child care, and are living paycheck to paycheck or are in significant debt, you belong here and you deserve a community that honours your price as equal an economic offering as the person who can pay the highest tier.
