Show 144: Jason Scott and the Doctrine of Signatures

Herbalists have a thousand different ways to connect plants with the people who need them. Some are ultra modern, like biochemistry and the science of herbal medicine making and others are older yet just as powerful when you know how to use them. Today, we are talking with spudgerasist and mycologist, Jason Scott, owner and operator of Feral Fungi and the curator of AlcheMycology about using the Doctrine of Signatures to work with plants and mushrooms.
