Tickets: http://bit.ly/WildCrafting 
Wildcrafting is the practice of sustainably harvesting plants from their natural or "wild" habitat, for food or medicinal purposes.

You are cordially invited to join Master Herbalist Amy Shea on the trails at Justin Trails Resort as she shares the lore and spiritual connections that we can find in the plants that surround us in the beautiful Driftless Region.

You will begin the day with a plant walk and discussion on the aspects of herbs as energetic and spiritual allies. You will be invited to personally connect with a plant along the trail through meditation. What will the plants share with you?

Following the lunch break, Amy will guide you through a session of Plant Spirit Wisdom product making as you create an herbal incense blend to take home.
