Teacher Training - Tree Communities: Alder, Cottonwood, & Willow Medicine

Trees are models of adaptability, resourcefulness and collaboration. They live in one place their entire lives, building the structures and relationships they need to thrive. In this workshop we will investigate three common trees that contribute to the health and diversity of Northwest landscapes, especially in wetlands and riparian zones. We will make pain-relieving medicine from bark and buds, create rooting water for stimulating plant starts, and build a small structure from willow.
