Marguerite Uhlmann-Bower

Marguerite Uhlmann-Bower, NYS Lic. R.N., Clinical Herbalist and co-founder of Plant Pioneers, a human-plant relations movement which serves to bring a deeper sense of connection of the natural world into ones life. Marguerite’s focus is on encountered based learning, where interactive exercises support natural wellness skills that greatly mitigate sensory overload, of many kinds.
Workshops integrate activities in natural self care, wellness with wild foods and herbals, knowing plants and trees on a personal level, meditative walking, Forest Bathing, to un-foraging. Dialoguing circles are around learning directly from Nature phenomena using plant sensitive instruments as intermediaries.

Weeds for Wellness- An ecological Foraging Event with Marguerite Uhlmann-Bower 

Marguerite Uhlmann-Bower, R.N,. and expert herbalist, returns to ISD to lead us on a fascinating walk to discover edible weeds, and plants, even invasive ones, that actually support our wellness. We will taste wild food, hear the music of the plants, and learn safe foraging with instructive hand-outs.

Wouldn't it be nice to know what nature offers up that is safe to eat?  Marguerite, who led us last summer in an amazing workshop on communing with trees, is the one to heed carefully- what is growing right around you, on your property, or in a crack in a sidewalk, that is actually FOOD? Discover with us!!

We will convene at Diana and Ben Friedell's home, and have an easy walk around Riddell Park to forage, which is very close to the Friedell residence.

Points Covered:

  • Identification of nutritionally dense wild plants for wellness.
  • Learn to identify  their nutrition and herbal virtues
  • Receive Electronic Hand-outs with Educational Tools & Recipes
  • Listen to "Music of the Plants"! Marguerite has a device that connects directly to the plant perceiving its electromagnetic signals and translates it into musical harmonies.
  • Marguerite will make us a beverage & snack from wild food
  • All Ages Welcome! Children should have permission from their parents.
