Herbal Antibiotics this Sunday - Reminder!
This is a continuation of our Herbal Antibiotics program. I have posted this as a reminder to those in the program! Day-trippers will be welcome at our next session, on October 21, plus one more TBA in November. Students, please bring your FORMULAS #1, #2 and possibly #3 if the condition you have chosen has three formulas. Be prepared to show the class your formula kit. If you have any questions or concerns feel free to message me. (My phone is not working this week so texts won't reach me) The weather should be perfect - about 19 degrees. With wind from the lake it might be cool - please bring a sweater or dress in layers. Sunglasses and a hat might be handy, too. * I have automatically RSVP'd for all our regular students. If you cannot make it, please update your RSVP so we know. **Please check your Meetup Messages on the morning of the event in case of any changes!** PLEASE BRING: 2 or more medium-large paper bags; A bottle of vodka for tinctures - or better yet, bring vodka in a couple of mason-type jars; 4 additional clean, glass jars with tight-fitting lids; Notebooks, writing utensils, Bag-lunch and snacks, water, and perhaps hot water in a thermos; I have 4 chairs to share. Please let me know if you will bring your own or would like me to bring one for you! We didn't get a chance to cover all the herbs I wanted to last session so we will do those plus a few new ones.

What we're about

We love wild things of all description, and we love to share knowledge about plants that we hope will help us grow and be healthy - physically, emotionally and spiritually. So, if you want to get together, get outside, and learn about wild-growing edible and medicinal plants, or just want to know what weeds in your garden can be put to good use in your kitchen, join us for guided wild-weed-walks, foraging excursions, wild herbal workshops, and other courses. Learn how to make your own herbal remedies and about safe, responsible, and sustainable foraging. And meet local foragers who will share your enthusiasm and their recipes and harvesting locations!

We have recently created a meetup group for the Toronto area, with more foraging and herbal walks, events and workshops - visit here ( for this information. If you wish to learn more about who I am, visit here (

Stay in touch by following us on Instagram - follow Realwildthing.

We have a website ( progress... but might be ready when you check). Take a look for our upcoming blog and homemade herbal products, like the awesome finishing salts made with locally foraged herbs, shown below.

*Some events are free; others will carry a fee, but, we do have a sliding scale fee-system for those who might need a bit of help to come out and join us. Just email Jennie to discuss. The idea is to be empowered and included, and work together for awareness and impact!
