If you have even a little bit of shade on your property, you can grow some of your own forest medicine. Jeanine Davis will start with a colorful presentation to introduce you to a wide array of woodland botanicals, including ginseng, goldenseal, black cohosh, ramps and bloodroot. She will cover the basics about the plants, their conservation status, and how to grow them. Davis will also have plant material to demonstrate how to propagate some of these plants, so you will gain the confidence to start growing medicinal herbs of your own.
