  • Supporting the Body in Acute Viral Afflictions - We will explore the many herbs that can support the immune response and body systems in acute viral infections. There are herbs that can enhance immune response, inhibit viral replication, and protect tissues from damage. We will also talk about the practicalities of care for people sick with viruses in this pandemic age.
  • Herbal Botany 101 - This will be a beginner-level walk-and-talk with lots of helpful hints on how to begin identifying plants for yourself, rather than relying on apps that often make mistakes. We will learn a step-by-step method for narrowing down the ID of an unknown plant. The meaning and importance of plant family relationships will be covered. We might taste a few green things along the way!
