Moonlight Medicine: Herbalism 101


#1

Kuwa and Astrius’s Herbalism 101 class is coming to a harvest festival near you, with Camp Witch Trial!

DISCLAIMER: We. Are. Not. Doctors. ALWAYS consult your physician before doing anything health-related, especially if you are taking medication or are under treatment for a current diagnosis. We WILL go over safety aspects in the Happening, but the short of it is: ask. your. doctor!!!

… still interested? Good!

This Happening is an introduction to herbalism to spur your interest and spark curiosity! We will be going over a general idea of what herbalism is, what it can be used for and ways in which they can be implemented, some of the more commonly used herbs, safety concerns, resources for furthering your knowledge on the subject. We will also walk you through your very own take-home herbalism project!

We will not be consuming anything at the Happening itself–again, SAFETY FIRST, and we are not physicians–but we will be making a take-home project. The project will get your feet wet, providing a helpful and fun crash-course that can start you off on your herbalism journey!

You won’t need to bring anything (other than note-taking materials if you so wish). We’ll supply a recipe and the necessary tools and components! That said, supplies are limited, so we’re asking folks to sign up here if interested.

I have some plants as medicine books that I can bring for this.


#4

I would love this so much!


#5

ooooo I would love to participate! :slight_smile:


#6

I’d love to be a part of this!


#7

I will be happy to supply dried herbs and also help with wild crafting as I know how to I’d plants


#8

That’s very kind of you! However, we’ll be supplying a set recipe for the take-home project and partitioning them out in measured amounts, so that won’t really be necessary. That said, if you want to share any information on wild-herbs local to the area and how to identify them, that sounds like it would be an awesome Happening in and of itself!


#9

I am very looking forward to this!


#10

I am curious! Yes! :slight_smile:


#11

Can you add an additional person, George, for this? Hes bad at forum-ing…


#12

There’s a huge possibility i’ll be interested


#13

Indeed! We will likely have a bit of room for drop-ins as well, but he’ll have a spot regardless. :slight_smile:

Thanks to everyone for spending your time making this a fun Happening! I hope you all got something useful out of it. A few people mentioned wanting a couple of the other recipes @Astrius and I have made, but I’ve a horrible memory. If you wanted another specific recipe or two, please feel free to DM me here, or reach out to me on Telegram at @KuwaWendigo

Otherwise, see y’all next year!
