Medicinal Forest Species List
« on: August 22, 2013, 01:12:42 PM »

A friend relayed to me part of a discussion he listened to where a teacher from somewhere was expressing his desire for a place he could reliably take students for field work and wildcrafting.

So I said to myself, self... this sounds like something you may wish to do.

I have several books yet I notice a lot of repetition among them. What I am looking to do is build a list of medicinals I can gradually incorporate into my Montana property. If you have personal knowledge or know someone that does and would like to contribute, that would be lovely.

My goal is to barter resources for education. It would also be a worthwhile use of acreage in addition to the other resources I am currently building. In the works is a mini medieval trades area. Blacksmith, pottery, wood working and 3 empty stalls/shops yet to be decided upon. Right now its just friends, family and fun but who knows if done right it may present an income stream one day.

Anyways thanks for any input on any topic.
