Green Greetings!

Let me catch my breath. This fall has seen me off and on lots of airplanes.

Most recently, to the Southeast Women’s Herbal Conference, a wonderful event created by my past apprentice, Corinna Wood, one of four past apprentices who have brought annual (and semi-annual) women’s (mostly) herbal conferences into being. What a blessing! I am so thankful that the Wise Woman Tradition is thriving.

Highlights of my time at the SEWHC:

     Eating dinner with Sally Fallon and discussing organizing MEAL, Meat-eating Animal Lovers, an organization that will promote family farms and sensible meat eating and her new book on broths.

     Being there for Sally at the book signing with my goat cheese to tide her over until dinner. Whew! (I always travel with goat cheese!)

     Connecting with Corinna and hearing her say she is stepping up and taking on more responsibility to make the Wise Woman Tradition visible and available to all women. (I love you Corinna; and you already do lots and lots.)

     A wild midnight ride on the golf cart with a drunk mother. (We did not let her drive.)

     Being invited by the Soil Sisters (the ‘tweens group) to tell them why I so strenuously object to being addressed as “You guys.” I am not a guy.

     Being told many times that my books make a difference in women’s lives. (I experience such joy and delight in knowing that my work assists you.)

     Lunch at the Biltmore Estate after the conference with Corinna’s mother.

This past weekend I taught the last two classes of the year at the Wise Woman Center. We were gifted with beautiful weather and lots of fall foliage. We made wild salads both days. In the picture gallery you will find a photo of Sunday’s exquisite salad, along with close ups of the ingredients.

Winter is nearly here. Don’t stop eating wild foods. There is still plenty to enjoy. Soak in the warmth of the late autumn sun and see how many of our salad plants you can find.

Green blessings.
