Hedgecraft 2023: The Witches Year 5 Class Series: Saturday Cohort
These classes are five in number and each one finds energetic inspiration from one of the four elemental powers. The fifth class shall draw from the unification of them all, the spirit. Drawing deeply from the taproot of the Old World and Appalachian folk magic that we are immersed in, we will rediscover which plants cure and which plants curse. Each class we will focus on at least one new potion making technique, as well as wild food and condiment creation. We’ll also create and empower amulets, talismans and wooden works from the forest around us to travel home with. Step back into the seasonal wisdom of the plants and trees around you to embody the ways of the Wild and the botany of the Witch.

The Poison Plants. Historically, Witches used a variety of plants in their ointments, brews and unguents, but none so maligned as the Solanaceae.

If you live far away and can't come to my classes in person, this is a fine substitute, minus all my great jokes.
The Appalachian Poison Path PDF
The Poison Path, first coined by mystic plant man Dale Pendell, is a path of wortcunning that requires knowledge and respect for some of the more dangerous plants in our pantheons.

Plants like poke, mayapple and sassafras await us to show us that what can kill can also cure.

Today there are many hard conversations about the sustainable use of White Sage and other threatened sacred plants used by indigenous peoples in North America (and globally). There are plants that people of non-indigenous ancestry can happily use for the purpose that White Sage has come to occupy and also to combat the destruction of sacred plant populations and the continuous disregard for the needs of indigenous peoples and their cultural and religious life. We'll meet a plethora of plants used for their sacred smoke from many countries around the world that now grow abundantly around us. Free to BIPOC. Just message us.
