Join Clinical Western Herbalist, Krista R. Herbe, RH(AHG), for a season centered look into the medicinal properties of Bay Area native plants. In this lecture scheduled for Saturday, Aug 17, at 5 pm, Krista will share how plants can provide nutrition, improve digestion, heal the skin, treat common diseases and boost the immune system. Highlighting the medicinal, energetic, and spiritual properties of individual plants & their European counterparts, she will also share a few common invasive species and how to use those ‘weeds’.
Folks will leave with a greater understanding of the unique healing powers of the plants around us. Krista received her Clinical Western Herbalist certification & was core faculty at the Ohlone Herbal Center in Berkeley. Though Krista is in private practice, she leads community herb walks, doing classes and mentorships in wild & urban places. She works to awaken our ancestral connections to our natural world.
