The School of Modern Herbal Medicine is hosting a free webinar on learning plant identification. I know I have some readers that are new to identifying plants, and thought to share this in case they would like to sign up! This from the site:)
“It's great that modern herbalism allows us to purchase ready-made herbal products in capsules, tablets, tinctures and other forms. However, it's even more wonderful when you actually know how to harvest and use local plants. There's something magical about being able to pick a wild plant or even a common garden weed and process it into your own herbal medicine. It helps you to recognize the bounteous gifts of Nature that are available to us for free!
With the economic struggles many people are experiencing and the global problems that are happening, and are predicted to continue to happen, its also reassuring when you know how to turn to nature for food and medicine.
That's why we're offering a botany class via webinar. It's not that you have to be an expert in botany to know how to identify a plant, its just that understanding some basic botany, such as leaf and flower structures, types of roots and fruits and the characteristics of major botanical families really helps you when it comes to identifying plants.
In this free introduction to our Botany class, we're going to discuss basic flower parts and introduce the characteristics of several major botanical families. We're not only going to talk about the plant characteristics of these families, we're also going to discuss some of their basic chemistry and energetics.
Join us and start understanding plants as something more than a prepared herbal medicine in a bottle. Start to get to know the plants as the living creatures they are. You'll gain a whole new appreciation for Nature's medicines.
This is a webinar (a class taught via the internet). To register, to to: https://www2.gotomeeting.com/register/934694290
