Herbalist Beverley Gray explores health and healing with wild plants of the north

headshot-webMedicinal plants grow wild all around us, We plant them in gardens and health store shelves are filled with them but what are the benefits of wild herbs and how can they be easily incorporated into our everyday lives?

Herbalist and author Beverley Gray presents a journey through the Northern landscape using wild medicine plants of the boreal forest as the teachers of the sacred.  Beverley shares her many years of experience gathering wild plants and weeds to use as food and medicines for the body, mind and spirit. She has inspired many to start making their own medicines, natural cosmetics and foods from the plants that grow locally as her way to help bring awareness to the environment, conservation and sustainable usage of natural resources.
