Other Workshops and Events

Sept 19 – 22, 2013: Thanks to Kiva Rose and Wolf I’ll be in Arizona at the Herbal Resurgence Rendezvous – Medicine Of The People, formerly The Traditions In Western Herbalism Conference. There is a great line-up of teachers, and it should be an exciting event.

November 15 – 17: I will be teaching at the Portland Plant Medicine Gathering. This event has great teachers and topics at a very affordable price!

Ongoing: Live Webinar: Bioregional Herbalism of the Oregon Cascades This online live webinar is available through the Sylvan Institute of Botanical Medicine on Thursday, November 15, 5 to 7pm PDT (2 hours), Cost: $30.

After an overview of the ecology of Oregon, Howie will focus on bioregional plants found in the marshes, meadows, old growth forests, partial cuts, and clear cuts of the western Oregon Cascades.

These plants will be viewed through the lens of the basic concepts of Western herbalism, including astringents, demulcents, aromatics, alteratives, diaphoretics, diuretics, and nervines.

Plants discussed will range from the well-known Ligusticum grayi, Ceanothus velutinus, Valeriana sitchensis, and Pedicularis sp., to the lesser known local herbs.
