Human-Plant Dialogues with Marguerite Uhlmann-Bower R.N., Herbalist, Eco-Vision

with Marguerite Uhlmann-Bower R.N., Herbalist, Eco-Vision

Since time immemorial, peoples from across the globe have depended on trees. Ancient and current civilizations were aware of their stature, their medicine, their power and their ability to create community cohesion. Today, in addition to folklore traditions there’s much research that validates trees impact to our human wellness.

On July 12th, we’ll gently trek the grounds at the Catskill Center’s Interpretive Center in Mt. Tremper and intimately connect with the trees and plants.

We’ll learn about their traditional uses as a food and as medicine and some ways we can integrate their benefits today. We'll also talk about forest bathing, reciprocal breathing, and learn tree and flower gazing techniques for everyday wellness and how to sustain a global woodland network that is caring for our trees.

We’ll top off the day with a rest and conversation while we taste 4 types of wild foods and drink. The recipes will be shared along with electronic handouts that will document the topics discussed.

Pre-registration is requested.

Marguerite Uhlmann-Bower is a licensed R.N., traditionally trained Herbalist, Plant Pioneer Ambassador and Wild Foods Forager, who guides groups through gardens, fields, and urban streets to identify weed plants in their healing properties. Her philosophy is - bringing people to these experiences, in essence will help the environment in as many ways as there are people. She says, “There is a global investigation to discover the realm of plants. If each person can embrace even a minimal relationship with the environment and its plant life, they will eventually embrace how to better treat the world they live in.”
