The world around us is greening-up. The red Indian Warriors are thrusting out of the forest floor and millions of tiny California Gold flowers are carpeting some meadow areas. Spring is arriving! This is a perfect time to come to the next Hayfork Cooperative meeting for Christina Johnson’s presentation on medicinal plants that grow wild here or are easily grown in our gardens. This is a free event but donations are welcome for the presenter and the server.
Christina Johnson is the founder and owner of Wild Mountain Herbs, a local producer of quality local medicinal herb products. She gathers wild medicinal herbs and grows many varieties in a wild and remote area. Johnson moved to Trinity County in 1989 with a vision that people should be able to make a living growing and harvesting the abundance that nature has to offer, to live a life in alliance with nature. She now has over 25 years experience growing, harvesting and processing medicinal herbs in Trinity County. Johnson’s products are sold in several stores regionally and she sells at the farmers markets in Weaverville and Redding.
From her extensive knowledge Christina Johnson will share growing and harvesting methods as well as medicinal uses of several local plants. Plants she will touch on include: Burdock, Catnip, Calendula, Chamomile, Dandelion, Echinacea, Garlic, Motherwort, Mullein, Red Clover, St. John’s Wort, Usnea, Valerian, Vervain, Violet, and Yerba Santa. Johnson will offer some medicinal herb plant starts for sale. Come learn more about these amazing herbal plant helpers. We look forward to seeing you there
