This month we’re gonna take a stroll out back to the Blackberry patch. Yep, I know there are no berries right now but we’ll still find plenty of medicine!
Traditionally, Blackberry root has been used as a tonic, for stopping chronic diarrhea and for building up the blood when people are anemic. We’ll also be harvesting the shoots and in time, the berries, for making our medicine this month!
Come along as we make all sorts of herbal medicine including Blackberry Shrub, Tincture, Syrup and more!
