Hello, Fall.Going to miss my Oregon summer….a memory of recent Campin’ treats: Cheeses I wrapped with wild Mt.Hood blueberries, Doug Fir pollen, St. John’s Wort, Oregon Grape & Epilobium angustifolia leaves ( AKA the PNW’s ubiquitous Fireweed )

Nettle time is upon us! Get yourself to any Pacific Northwest woodland area and harvest the goods.. As a rule of thumb for sustainable wildcrafting and herb gathering, never deplete an entire stand of plants,(walk several yards to gather a bit from each stand), and only harvest the aerial (above ground) parts. Stinging Nettle/Urtica dioca is chock full of vitamins A, B and C, as well as calcium, magnesium, potassium and zinc: it strengthens your immune system, fights against allergies, and relieves PMS, among many other helpful traits- all for free! Wildcrafting and eating wild plants is anti-capitalist and self-loving. Lemme know if you want help with your harvest!
