Intro to Plant Medicine
Saturday Oct 22nd; 9am-5pm
Sunday Oct 23rd; 9am-5pm
Please arrive by 8:45am and be prepared to start at 9am.
Where: Linne Doran is located about fifteen minutes outside of Duvall in the foothills of the Cascade Mountains. You can find a map and driving directions here.
What to Expect:
We will be spending significant time outside regardless of the weather. We encourage you to be prepared for all types of weather and bring several layers so that you can be comfortable throughout the class.
During this weekend we introduce you to the basics of plant medicine with hands-on identification, ethical harvesting, plant processing, and medicine making. We balance theory with practice; this helps you create a multifaceted relationship with plants to support your specific health needs on many levels. You will make several medicines: tinctures, oils, infusions, and more!
As this program is about connecting with nature, we will ask people to turn off their devices and only use for emergencies.
We ask all participants to stay home if they have signs or symptoms of Covid-19. Please see the following Dept. of Health Guidelines for an updated list of symptoms. All students are asked to quarantine or isolate if they have symptoms or a Covid exposure per the most up to date state and county guidelines. Please note that masks may be required OR may be optional. We will send an update about current health and safety requirements 2 weeks before the start date.
Our Linne Doran campus includes Cedar Lodge, our indoor classroom and meeting space, as well as several outdoor classrooms including a large yurt and our outdoor classroom. There are porta-potties on the property. Linne Doran has limited cell reception and no internet access.
Participants are welcome to camp on our property on Saturday evening. Accommodations are rustic: there are simple campsites, potable water, and firewood provided.
If you would like more modern accommodations, there are some Airbnb/VRBO type accommodations nearby, as well as a Tolt McDonald Park (20 minutes away) for large RV set-ups. We do not have space for RV’s or for campers that are larger than a standard pickup truck.
Food is not provided for this course. Please bring a lunch and snack food for each day. Instruction will end by 5pm on Saturday (or earlier depending on the class).
