STORY AND PHOTO BY KAREN BOSSICK

Want to tap that medicine cabinet in your garden? Or the nearby woods?

Idaho’s own medicine woman Darcy Williamson will return to the Sawtooth Botanical Garden on Saturday and Sunday, June 1-2, to conduct two day-long medicinal plants workshops.

Both classes run from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Williamson, a respected herbalist who lives in the McCall area, has written several books, including the popular “Medicinal Plants of the Northwest.”

Students will embark on an outing into the woods surrounding the garden to harvest herbs, barks and roots both mornings before retreating to the greenhouse to recap the plants they’ve harvested and learn about their medicinal values.

On Saturday afternoon students will turn their harvest into medicinal salves and lip balms that they may take home. On Sunday they will prepare medicinal teas from their harvest.

Cost is $80 for members of the Sawtooth Botanical Garden who wish to take only the salve making class and $60 for those taking only the tea making class. Or, it’s $120 for both classes.

Those who are not members of the garden should add $30 for each class.

The fee includes a copy of “Medicinal Plants of the Northwest,” a 287-page spiral-bound book with 130 pen and ink illustrations, all the materials to make the salves and teas and a “Native American Medicinal Plant Chart,” which details 15 plants and their uses.
