In this episode I sit down for a conversation with Mike Masek, community herbalist, and educator who runs “The Forager’s Path School of Botanical Studies”. We talk about Mike’s journey into the world of herbs and his promotion of the concept of “Community Herbalism”. We talk about the efficacy of herbal medicine and the best way to approach it to gain the most benefits in light of our “cure in a pill” society. We also discuss ways to begin using herbs at home and methods for getting out to identify and collect herbal medicine within 50 miles of one’s home.
