Many of the common trees in our area have historical and modern medicinal uses. In this class participants will learn about several native and non-native trees and shrubs with healing properties. Species to be covered include ailanthus, black walnut, sassafras, white oak, white pine and others. While the class will focus on medicinal uses, species identification and medicinal preparations will be briefly covered as well. Come learn about the trees that presently and in the past have comprised nature’s pharmacy.
