I’ve recently come across some wise words from my mentor and friend, Cascade Anderson Gellar who passed way too soon…I miss her and treasure her many lessons at many herbal medicine conferences.
“Nature knows ahead what sickness there will be. What is abnormally abundant is what is coming.”
“We need to wildcraft in order to keep things coming back.”
“Plants are babies and babies come first.”
“Waste is our own small evil.”
“If you don’t take from the wild you aren’t appreciating it.”
“Taking life [harvesting plants] is a sacred act; what you say and what you do is extremely important. ”
“We are the voices of the plants. ”
“You can’t wildcraft until your well is filled.
Knowledge of how to harvest
Practice your highest self.”
“Our job is to enliven and thrive.”
