Plant Journaling 101

Saturday, January 26, 2019 - 10:00am until 12:00pm

Come out for a morning of learning and fun with Jennifer Galbrath, owner of Meadowlark Farms. We will use a new technique to make our Materia Medica where no artistic abilities are required. Skills and concepts covered: 1) Learn what a Materia Medica is and why it is important to have one and use it, 2) Use a plant press to preserve your finds and properly document. 3) Learn how to properly store your information. 4) Learn how to responsibly harvest plants and herbs From a young age, Jennifer Galbrath has been drawn to the world outside her window. She has loved the way that the natural world can influence a person’s mood and fresh air refreshes the lungs. It was not until she was older and started to explore the concept of homesteading and natural living, that Jennifer came to find herself in love with the idea of herbal medicine. Jennifer spent several years as a personal injury paralegal, watching the effects of modern medicine on injured clients. The passion to learn how to better help not only those clients, but also her own family and friends, led Jennifer to the Herbal Academy of New England where she immersed herself in her studies and began to seek out classes, books and any other source of information she could find to locate a more natural answer. Once she started to see the more natural approaches, she started offering these herbal remedies to her family as well as others through her herbal company Meadowlark Farms. It has since been a great pleasure for Jennifer to see her husband, children and friends curb the side effects of prescription drugs including helping a dear friend recover during chemotherapy. Jennifer is passionate about gardening, wild crafting, homesteading and raising her children in a chemical free world and teaching others to do the same. Knowing that with all of the new technology and discoveries, sometimes the best solution to a problem comes in the knowledge we learned at our grandmother’s side.
