For those of you who can not come to my herb walks or classes on my farm, I have uploaded two, 30 minute videos to YouTube that introduce you to a variety of wild edibles and medicinal herbs in the Pacific NW of the United States. Information on them and the link is listed below. I will upload two additional videos very soon. These are all taken from videos I use to sell in the 90's.
