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 her cabin on Pigeon Lake 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
- We'll also go on a Plant Walk in Delena's backyard to discover many of the wild plants she is working with
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.
Note: This is an introductory class for beginners and it is designed to compliment the Plant Medicine Garden Workshop that was offered last April/May. Although there will be some overlap between the two workshops, I will be emphasizing different concepts and we will be using different plants to make the medicines. For those interested, I am planning more intermediate workshops to build onto these intro workshops.

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.
