Podcast Show 184: Wildcrafting with Howie Brounstein and Christina Sanchez
When the weather is right and the herbs are calling, we herbalists love to get into the wild for a little wildcrafting. What is wildcrafting? It is a common term for for harvesting medicinal and food plants that grow in wild or uncultivated places. Whether you’re going into the forest, field or desert, there are a few tips and rules for doing it right. Today, we’re talking with Christina Sanchez, founder of Every Leaf Speaks and Howie Brounstein of Columbine School of Botanical Studies about wildcrafting in many environments properly.
