Ethical Harvesting

This 6-part course will cover a variety of topics related to ethical harvesting of edible and medicinal plants, including awareness of the Indigenous Nations whose homelands we are living on, how to harvest in a way that minimizes harm to plants, learning how to support the conservation of rare and endangered plants, and developing our personal ethical harvesting protocols, and working with weeds.

This class presumes that students already have some knowledge of the medicinal plants available in their area. While this course will provide examples of specific plants, our focus will be on harvesting plants that we are already familiar with, rather than on providing students with an overview of medicinal herbs.)

Joshua Dunn (Osage) has studied Indigenous North American plants, and how to work with them as medicine, with Indigenous plant knowledge-keepers across Turtle Island. He also has a background in western herbalism, ethnobotany, and sustainable agriculture. As a bioregional herbalist and teacher, he focuses on working with plants that are abundant locally.
