Show 142: Wildcrafting in the Desert with Christina Sanchez
Desert herbs have begun to call to more and more of us. These powerful plant allies, however, have been a well-kept secret of the Southwest…which makes them a challenge to try out. They beckon us to get out and wildcraft for the privilege of using of them. Today, we are talking with Christina Sanchez, cosmologist, desert wildcrafting expert, herbalist, and founder of Every Leaf Speaks about gathering and using desert herbs with the care and respect they deserve.
