SANDWICH — The Friends of Mead Base and the Saco Ranger District will be conducting a hands-on intensive class about sustainable harvesting techniques and basic preparation of local medicinal plants on Saturday, August 17 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. The program will be held at the Mead Base Camp located at the foot of trails leading to the summit of Mount Israel in Sandwich.
Invasive plants, at-risk species, abundant plants, and lone individual species all require a unique approach in harvesting for their medicinal benefits with the goal of sustainability. At this class, students will have the opportunity to practice identification skills, and get their hands in the earth during a guided harvest of many wild growing species.
Later in the day, participants will return to base camp and proceed to create tea, tincture, syrup and wound powder with the collected harvest.
