This podcast is a combination of two separate talks from a pre-recorded plant walk led by Shana Lipner Grover at Mount Pisgah in Eugene, Oregon. A talented clinical herbalist, field botanist, and nutrition educator, Shana introduces us to two plants abundant throughout the Pacific Northwest, stinging nettle and poison oak.
Perhaps not outwardly considered allies as their touch can occasionally induce minor skin irritations, Shana explains how these plants can become our friends when properly identified and treated with respect. Engaging and informative, Shana reviews the botany, habitat, safety, and uses of nettle and poison oak and teaches us that by paying close attention to these plants we can be in relationship with them and learn from them.
Shana was a student of award-winning author Michael Moore and also one of Mountain Rose Herbs' favorite herbalists, Howie Brounstein. Today, she is the director and primary educator of Sage Country Herbs School of Botanical Studies in San Diego, CA.
