Edible & Medicinal Plants of Canada
Throughout human history plants have provided us with food, clothing, medicine and shelter. Canada is a huge country with diverse habitats that are home to an incredible diversity of plant species that have helped native peoples and early settlers survive through the centuries. This book describes nearly 600 common trees, shrubs, flowers, ferns, mosses and lichens that have been used by people from ancient times to the present. More than 800 color photographs and illustrations.
I've read & re-read this book countless times, and have memorized the poisonous section.
I learned so much with Laura in the Edible and Medicinal Plants of Canada. This course, the company, the land and our dear guide gave so much knowledge in the 5 days we got to be there. I learned about the plants that I’ve admired on my own land and now understand so much about how to identify them, why that is so important and the medicinal qualities they have. I am still using my infused vinegar, salve and holy basil tincture from last year. Looking forward to joining you again in 2022.
Extremely useful book highly recommend.
So worth it! Very useful, full colour guide! Would recommend!
