In this DVD Susun Weed teaches about botany and wildcrafting for
herbalists. Susun takes you on a walk with her apprentices and her goats
across her land at the Wise Woman Center.
Susun explains the Latin naming system devised by Swedish botanist Carl Linnaeus in the 1700s. Each herb has a family and a genus that it belongs to and a species that is its name. She explains the Tree of Life, flowering and non-flowering plants, and the reproductive cycle of flowering plants and herbs. She also teaches you about identifying and harvesting herbs; and differentiates between annuals, biennials and perennials.
As Susun says: “Weave yourself into the Wise Woman web. Join me in reclaiming herbal medicine as people’s medicine. Loving green blessings from me to you.”
