Farm to Medicine Cabinet Plant Walk at Shelburne Farms with Lani Courtney

1161 Harbor Road
Shelburne, VT

Our farm landscapes are not only capable of producing nourishing foods but also powerful plant-based medicines from weeds, cover crops, ornamental gardens, forests, and backyards. This “weed walk” will introduce participants to medicinal plants commonly found on different parts of the Vermont farm landscape and invites participants to engage in deepening the local food movement by incorporating nature-based local medicine as part of a resilient food system. This program is offered in partnership with Railyard Apothecary by Urban Moonshine & Burlington Herb Clinic.

Lani Courtney is a clinically trained herbalist and educator. She believes healing is an art and a science, and by blending safe and effective traditional therapies with current scientific knowledge, she educates individuals about whole body wellness.  Her clinical training at VCIH has given her the experience to discuss how symptoms may serve as guides to underlying imbalances and causes of illness.  She is a down-to-earth and calming presence, who is available to hear your story, pull the pieces together, and empower clients to embrace their own healing journey. Passionate about using plants as the medium to connect mind, body, and spirit with cycles of life and patterns of nature, she is also able to educate around conventional treatments and alternative/adjunctive herbal approaches.  She has deep respect for the intricacies of human and plant relationships, and hopes to revive a calling back to nature and connection to the wild on which our health depends.

Cost is $12 per person.

Registration is required. Please visit the event site for more information.
