2018 Alchemy of Womyn Festival, Stonehedge Community
July 27-29, 2018 Earth Temple
Walk with Community Herbalist Dionne Jennings & connect with the plants of Stonehedge.
Learn to identify many common local medicinal plants & some of their traditional medicinal uses.
We will be exploring different ways to develop relationship with plants such as taste, smell, the doctrine of signatures & “extra-sensory” communication.-i.e. touching on the “masculine” or “left brained” model of Phytomedicine vs. “feminine” or “right brained” & Wise Women herbal traditions.
We will also explore how working with plant medicine connects us with our ancestral feminine lineage as well as some traditional cultural roles relating to women & herbal medicine.
July’s Pop-up Herb Walk
Late June/Early July, 2017.
Stay tuned to Edmonton Herb Club or subscribe to my mailing list to get first dibs on this guided garden “tour” that will explore some of the hidden medicines in our ornamental flower gardens. Want to learn how Lady’s Mantle is used medicinally, visit one of the most beloved blossoms & source of one of the highest priced aromatic oils on the market today, & what the Queen of All Poisons looks like? Join me for a gorgeous evening in late June/early July. More details to follow!
Good Friday, April 14th, 2017 1:30-3:00 pm
We will discuss some local trees & shrubs that have a traditional medicinal use, when to harvest them & how you can prepare them. As it is Easter weekend the theme of the walk will be around some plants used in spring ritual & religious celebration, and cultural use of plants as medicines in general.
Interested in learning more about local herbs that you can use for you and your family? Wondering what some of the herbs you are reading about on the internet look like? And where to find them? Or if you can grow them?
Join Community Herbalist Dionne Jennings for a guided plant walk around her Highlands Herb Garden.
We will be visiting and discussing at least 10-15 plants in detail—but there will be many, many to talk about! Some will be weedy volunteers, some will be natives we can use, and some will be well known western herbs & flowers we can grow right here in Edmonton (which can fall under any of those categories).
We will cover when/how to harvest, best ways to use them/prepare them as medicine, and we will also taste a few to get acquainted with their properties.
