Herbal Care through Wildfire SeasonElder Apothecary
August 15th from 6 to 7:30 pm
“Wildfires are becoming the norm here on the west coast. In a time where we can feel powerless, we can find solace in herbs and ritual. In this class, we will discuss herbal protocols for before, during, and aer wildfires. We will talk about body systems that are impacted, how to care for those parts of ourselves using herbs, expand on nutritious and protective foods, and medicinal preparations. There will be handouts and recipes to take home after class.”
Dana Aronson is a trained clinical herbalist who takes joy in community based, hands-on learning. She focuses her studies on bio-regional plants from the Pacific Northwest and intertwines them into her small practice based in Southern Oregon on occupied Takelma land. After finishing an herbalism apprenticeship and 2 year clinical internship at Berkeley Herbal Center, she started facilitating mobile first aid herb clinics. These pop up clinics provide herbal first aid and wellness to a wide range of areas from gatherings, to places that have been hit with natural devastation, to working with folks who are unhoused and implementing harm reduction. Dana believes in offering accessible herbal medicines, and transparent + digestible information. She teaches in the great outdoors, is a medicine making teacher, and cultivates for her herbal line, Wild Kin Botanicals.
