February Events

Here are a few events coming up in February that you might be interested in. Thanks to Kathy A. for the heads up about "Plants as Medicines" being offered through the University of St. Thomas on February 16. Looks very interesting. If you know of some other events, please let me know and I'll pass them along.


I know you are maybe/likely growing weary of online meetings, but I appreciate that they are available to anyone anywhere. And, personally, I'm liking this participating from my warm house and not needing to drive anywhere at night or in the metro are! However, come summer I am looking forward to seeing many of you in-person at the You Pick Medicinal Herb Garden!


Wednesday, February 3, 7:00-9:00 p.m.

Matthew Wood Institute of Herbalism

Presenters: Matthew Wood and Phyllis Light

Topic: Blood Movers

In Chinese herbalism, Native American medicine, and homeopathy, the concept of “stagnant blood” or “congealed blood” is quite important. Most of these injuries are thought of as acute, but they can linger and cause chronic problems...Matthew Wood and Phyllis Light bring their 75 years of joint herbal wisdom to bear on this subject, which is easy for the beginner to master and the experienced herbalist to grow.

This class is available to persons registered in their "Herbs A to Z" course, which is only $8/month. I think that's the best deal there is in the herbal medicine world!
