Have you ever thought about gathering and making your own medicine to enhance your health and wellness? Would you like to learn more about the wild plants that grow in your area?
Join Delena Rose at the Leduc Public Library for an introduction to Wild Plant Medicine. In our time together you will learn:
- What is wild plant medicine?
- A respectful approach to working with plants
- A list of common but powerful medicinal wild plants that grow right here in central Alberta
- When/how to harvest these plants and what part of the plant to harvest (bud, leaf, root, flower, berry)
- Foraging equipment and safety
- Three basic medicine preparations you can easily do at home: teas, tinctures and poultices
Each participant will get hands-on experience making styptyk powder and a tincture (valued at $25). Participants will receive plants and solvent for their tincture, a small jar, bottle dropper and funnel, and a beautiful handout with all of the information covered in the class, including recipes and dosages.
Register here. If you prefer to pay at the workshop, choose "COD cash on delivery" at the payment option.
About your Presenter: Delena Rose
Delena has a Bachelor of Science degree (Biology), a Bachelor of Education degree, and a Masters of Education degree (specializing in Indigenous Peoples Education).
Professionally, Delena has taught in Indigenous schools, coordinated an Adult Literacy Program, and worked for both the federal and provincial governments in First Nations, Metis and Inuit Education. She left her career nine years ago when her son, Chayton was born and turned her full attention to home education, studying Plant Medicine, building her home-based business "cabinorganic" and living a natural, sustainable life at her cabin on Pigeon Lake, Alberta.
As a Metis woman rooted in her culture and deeply connected to the land, Delena’s approach to Plant Medicine is both Indigenous and scientific (Plant Intelligence and Ecology). The teachings she shares include her own personal experiences of gathering, growing, making, and using Plant Medicine while living on the land here in central Alberta.
