California Native Medicinal Plants: Traditional and Contemporary Uses of Widely Available California Native Medicinal Plants

by Nicole Witch-Hazel

In a discussion based forum we will cover a spectrum of topics including lung support, women’s health, basic first aid, and common cold and flu issues. We will discuss medicinal properties as well as best propagation and growing practices for each plant. I hope to promote self-reliance through effective self-healing, and advocate against wild-harvesting. My goal is to foster the art of self care in reciprocity with the life around us. -Nicole
