Blue Boy Herbs
Visiting Michigan community herbalist Jim McDonald (www.herbcraft.org) will pair up with Mississippi community herbalist Darrell Martin (www.blueboyherbs.com) for a wondrous exploration of plants that grow locally and are used medicinally. Herb walks, herb talks, fabulous food, incredible music, camping (or not!) will be on the agenda (see attached flier for all the details!)
Jim will help us to explore the energetics of the plants: are they heating or cooling, drying or moistening, bitter, salty, sweet, sour, etc. Lindsay Wilson will be there to talk about cold remedies, and I will give a talk on the human interface with plants. It will also coincide with the Sacred Cow Festival held nearby which will have musical and dance entertainment on Saturday evening.
Camping ($170 – includes dinner Saturday night and breakfast Sunday morning) or commute: full day ($80) or full weekend ($150), or 1/2 days with lunch ($40 each day) are your choices. As usual, kids welcome and free! Caregivers attending children and not workshops need only pay for meals ($10 per meal).

I will be handling the deposits, so please send to me, Donna Caire, 23198 Brook Forest Road, Abita Springs, LA 70420 to reserve your space. Placing a deposit (1/2 or in full) will help Linda know how much food to prepare, and give her seed money. See attached flier for more details and/or email me for more information – Donna Caire, [email protected]).
The workshop this past weekend with Appalachian Herbalist Phyllis Light (www.phyllisdlight.com) was illuminating and delightful. One full day on understanding the way our thyroid, adrenals and neurotransmitters work and the herbs that can assist them, followed by very powerful work with our personal stories, and how we can change their endings if we want to. If you missed it, she promised to come back next year.
