Join herbalist and Wilderness First Responder Greta de la Montagne for an intensive workshop on herbal first aid. The weekend class will cover first-line therapies for conditions ranging from heat exhaustion and parasitic infections to sprains and panic attacks. We will cover plant identification, wildcrafting/plant collecting ethics, herbal first aid kit ingredients, and give you hands-on experience with techniques such as wound poulticing, sprain management and heat exhaustion. Learn the top remedies for your first-aid kit, easy-to-find medicinal weeds, and the basics of how to set up and manage an off-grid, “pop-up” herbal first aid or wellness clinic. Class size is limited and early registration is recommended.
10.0 hours of general CEUs to be applied for (OBNM.)
