Herbal First Aid Intensive says

Join herbalist and Wilderness First Responder Greta de la Montagne for a two-day intensive workshop on herbal first aid. The weekend class will cover first-line therapies for conditions ranging from heat exhuastion and parasitic infections to sprains and panic attacks. We will cover plant identification, wildcrafting/plant collecting ethics, herbal first aid kit ingredients and give you hands-on experience with techniques such as wound poulticing, sprain management and heat exhaustion. The weekend includes top remedies for your first aid kit, easy-to-find medicinal weeds and covers the basics of how to set up and manage an off-grid, "pop-up" herbal first aid or wellness clinic and interaction with event or disaster response coordinators. Class size is limited and early registration is recommended.
