    This is an AWESOME idea! I have another appointment that runs into 6:30... Could be there by 6:45... Would that be too late?

    Every year at this time (when I was on the west coast) I would gather buds of Populus balsamifera to make tinctures and salves for Balm of Gilead, Since moving to Maine I've not found the large stands of poplar (I realize I wont find the acres of Black Poplar in a river bend) needed to collect a large amount of spring buds. Any suggestions of where to look in York or surrounding counties?

      Hi River. I recently moved to a farm in the mountains with over 600 acres of pretty much wildlife. I will ask my landlord if he knows. If they have any here he will probably be okay with me harvesting some for medicinal purposes.

      Lisset, Thanks for looking. All you need is the bud and a large tree can supply all you need from just the lowest branches.

    Hi River, I'm also new to this immediate area and I don't know, but maybe other members will chime in with their knowing! Warmly, Mischa

      Mischa, Thanks. I've only know of one tree locally and was surprised I have not located any more. I've seen them when I drive to CT, but I'm not planning a trip.

    I'll be in another class on Thursdays until June, but will keep an eye out for days other than Thursday. I'll see you in June. :)
