When we think of blackberry here in the Pacific Northwest, we often think of an invasive species, but Shana Lipner Grover sees all the uses of this prolific and abundant plant. Join clinical herbalist, field botanist, and nutrition educator, Shana Lipner Grover, as she brings us to Mount Pisgah Arboretum to discuss blackberry (Rubus armeniacus), its medicinal uses, and the importance of using invasive species to protect our native flora and fauna. Blackberry roots are tannic and astringent, its leaves help support wellness through its toning properties, and its berries are delicious and nutritious. 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.
