just hanging out in a willow Greetings to those who have stumbled across my campaign , or found me through a social media share!

I'm Becky, a feisty, inquisitive, adventurous learner living in the great Pacific North West. Even as a small child,I was constantly stopping and stooping to investigate any & everything growing out of the ground...In fact, my mother's favorite memories are of our walks to and from the library -- me pointing out every weed and plant sprouting from the sidewalks cracks of Milwaukee.

This passion for our natural world has never left me-- I obsessively point out ALL fungi I spot on hikes, or even jaunts in the park. I blend my own herbal/medicinal teas. I own over a dozen books on wild foraging, plant identification, and the greater relationships between plants, people, and restoration of the environment.

However, all of the best books in the world cannot compare to hands on knowledge, especially when it comes to plant identification. First-hand, tactile experiences are key in building confidence when it comes to an Herbalist's education.  That key component, the missing piece in my journey, has found me at last in the Cedar Mountain Herbal School and it's intensive, 11-week Summer Apprenticeship Program.  Through this opportunity, I will learn: 

  • botanical identification, herbal lore, and ethnobotany
  • Herbal first aid, as well as support strategies for our bodily systems
  • plant constituents and formulas, herbal medicine making, and the ethics of wild-crafting  
  • participate in weekly field work, culminating in a 3 day harvesting trip

The funds I raise through this campaign will go towards tuition, text books, the herbarium I will build, and the purchase of any jars, droppers, and other various oddities required for class work.

 

From the bottom of my heart, I ask for your help in making my dream come true! Please consider donating to my education and sharing with friends and family....

 

WITH ETERNAL GRATITUDE <3     ~becky
