Hi Michelle! Great to swap seeds & stories with beer! Great picture of you watching that morel grow up through the forest floor....I'm a fungi geek too!
I'll forward you my email/phone number. I'll be at Birchwood Garden club meeting Weds 7pm if you want to attend as my guest...Info posted somewhere in Earth Gardens group, or eventually under the Events page.
Welcome to the grain & bean group. Our group is very specialized and most of us busy working outside. I garden just south of you in the Squalicum Mt/Steward Mt watershed.
As a gardener and homesteader, along with your interested in herbal medicine preperations, you might be interested in the larger group on TW called
Earth Gardens: Edible-Medicinal-Wild Habitats that is located: http://transitionwhatcom.ning.com/group/organic
(To join, click the “Join” button after sigining on to your TW site)
There is a new discussion within our Earth Gardens group on Medicinal Plants & Fungi that you might like to contribute to. A dozen of us met this past week to share how to make herbal tinctures, and we plan to have more meetings as time & space & initiative allows.
Here's a link to the discussion. If you click “Follow” after any discussions that interest you, you'll receive an email when someone posts.
