Both the rich hardwood forest and evergreen woodlands of the Northeast harbor several species of flowering herbs that are considered at-risk. Some of these herbs have a rich tradition of use by past herbalists and mid-wives, who had an intimate connection with the landscape that nurtured these wild plants. Through the efforts of United Plant Savers, we are learning how to protect and grow these indigenous plants and to use alternative plants, who are not at risk, in their place. The idea of using the flower essence and energetic resonance of these plants is another way of including them in our practice. Kate will share stories, photos and case studies of these beautiful, quiet beings.
