Learn how to identify and use the plants of our backyards and wild spaces to support your own health and healing. In this course, we will learn about ten native Wisconsin plants, including how to identify them, their medicinal uses, and the stories and spirits of each plant. Finally, we will learn how to use these common plants to create an infused oil and a salve for topical applications.

Instructor: Shannon Renne, Herban Artisans, Madison,WI
“As an herbalist my goal is to share the empowering birth right of healing ourselves and communities with nature’s gifts. Three years ago my friend and I developed our own small business, Herban Artisans, to provide herbal education, clinical consultations and plant based products for the Madison area. I have completed five years of formal herbal education and a clinical herbal apprenticeship. The plants and people on this journey continue to teach me something new each day!”
