Winter Lecture Series: Forest Medicine with Amanda Crooke (Feb. 5, 2023)

Free

Before the dawn of modern medicine, humans turned to the fields and forest for a reprieve to what ailed them. Explore the medicinal powers of precious forest herbs such as black cohosh (Actaea racemosa), goldenseal (Hydrastis canadensis), blue cohosh (Caulophyllum thalictroides), American ginseng (Panax quinquefolius), Solomon’s seal (Polygonatum spp.) and spicebush (Lindera benzoin). We will discuss the uses of these plants in traditional and modern herbalism, as well as explore sustainability issues with these plants and discuss alternative herbal options.

Amanda Crooke is the herbalist and owner of Locust Light Farm in Titusville, NJ. She has worked with herbs as a farmer, a medicine-maker and herbalist for eight years, and has offered classes both on her farm and online for all levels of experience. She is the herbal pharmacy teacher at David Winston’s Herbalist Training Program and has a private clinical practice.

Crooke will be joining us in person for this program.
