Consuming plants as food and medicine is an excellent way to deepen your relationship to the natural environment while nourishing yourself and preventing disease. Join community herbalist and co-founder of Railyard Apothecary, Katherine Elmer, to explore common medicinal weeds growing in backyards and urban spaces. Safe harvesting of plants from urban areas will also be discussed. Come away with a newfound appreciation for those “nuisance weeds”! Katherine teaches and practices as a clinical herbalist at Spoonful Herbals, the University of Vermont Program in Integrative Health, the Burlington Herb Clinic and the Railyard Apothecary.
