Wise Woman Center -- Workshops for Women
Join us this year for spirit healing and herbal medicine workshops, intensives, and apprenticeships with Susun Weed and other Wise Woman teachers. The Wise Woman Center in Woodstock NY exists to re-weave the healing cloak of the Ancients. This land, this sacred sanctuary for women is a place for the teachings of the Wise Woman way. The Goddess lives here, as do goats, fairies, green witches, and elders. Located between Woodstock and Saugerties, 5 miles from the NYS Thruway, the Wise Woman Center is easily accessible while private enough for nude swimming. You'll receive a map and directions when you register. Nourishing wild-food vegetarian meals are included with all workshops.

Letting Nature Grow your Garden
Dancing with the Fairies


Your garden. What fun -- and frustration -- await you there! The best mentor you can choose, as far as I'm concerned is Nature herself. Nature likes life everywhere. Have an open field and plants magically appear! This is the way plants grow when left to themselves. We don't have to struggle so much.

It is wisest to let Nature have Her way. Nature has her own agenda, and your life as a gardener will be easier if you bow to Her desires. Better to dance with the fairies than struggle with eliminating "weeds". What herbs already grow around you that you can use as teas and seasonings? Most areas are rich in such plants, both native and introduced. Many of them will be happy to grace your garden with very little effort on your part. Some will appear, others may want to be transplanted. Still others are simply there, waiting for you to notice.

For instance, pine trees. Pine needle vinegar is an exquisite treat that is easy to make. I call it homemade "balsamic" vinegar. Fill a jar with pine needles. (I prefer white pine, and pinyon pine is even better, but the needles of any pine are fine.) Cover needles completely with apple cider vinegar, filling the jar to the top and capping with a plastic lid or a piece of plastic wrap held in place with a rubber band. This vinegar, like most that I make, is ready to use in six weeks. Pine vinegar is rich in flavonoids, vitamins, and minerals. It helps keep the immune system strong, and strengthens the lungs as well. I love it on salads.

Your home, like mine in the Catskills, offers rose hips and sumac berries for vitamin-C rich teas; spice bush leaves and berries to suggest the flavors of bay and allspice; and the roots of sweet clover to use as a vanilla substitute.

Grab a local field guide and go looking for all the plants that are native to your area. For example, if you live in the northern states like Minnesota, a great book is "How Indians Use Wild Plants for Food, Medicine, and Crafts", written in 1926 by Frances Densmore who collected information from the Minnesota Chippewa. There are many similar guides available.

Why use native plants? They are often hardy survivors and naturally adapted to the area, sometimes requiring less watering and care. Whether in the wilds or in your garden, Nature is ever-ready to provide you with all you need with little or no input from you. An abundance of edible and medicinal plants covers every inch of my garden -- and I didn't plant any of them. With only a little help from me (I spread compost several inches deep on my gardens spring and fall, and keep them fenced against my goats and the marauding deer), my gardens grow: garlic mustard, chickweed, violets, dandelion, curly dock, nettles, burdock, wild madder, crone(mug)wort, wild chives, poke, catnip, malva, wild mint, bergamot, cleavers, motherwort, chicory, raspberry, goldenrod, creeping jenny, barbara's cress, evening primrose, milk weed.

The next best thing to letting Nature plant your herb garden for you is to put in perennials and let Nature take care of them. You will find the best plants for your area at a plant swap at a local church or school. Nurseries, especially the mail order ones, offer lots of different kinds of plants, but only a few of them will be both productive and carefree.

The most dependable perennial herbs are echinacea, comfrey, elecampane, wormwood, and thyme, on the hardiest members of the aromatic mint family.

Cuttings of various mints are easy to come by and easier yet to establish. Chocolate mint and red bergamot are two of my favorites, but don't be choosy, accept any and all mint cuttings you are given. Perennial aromatic mints -- including lemon balm, lavender, rosemary, thyme, sage, oregano. pennyroyal, and catnip as well as spearmint and peppermint -- form the "backbone" of most herb gardens. Just grow them in full sun in poor soil and don't overwater.

Anyone who has a comfrey plant will be glad to give you a "start" (a piece of the root). And, once put in, comfrey is a friend for life. Ditto rhubarb, whose root is a formidable herbal medicine.

Magazines offer gardening knowledge in small doses, and at appropriate times, instead of all at once, and this is usually more helpful than a book that tries to cover all seasons and all reasons. These are my current (spring 2002) favorites:

The American Gardener, a publication of the American Horticultural Society. Perhaps it is a bit more formal than I am, but it nonetheless has a down-home charm. Check out or call 1-800-777-7931. When you join, you get the magazine plus the right to join in their annual seed give-away.

The Garden Gate is very practical and covers a wide range of topics in excellent detail: from plants to planters to planting your feet so your back stays strong. Every page counts, as there is no advertising. You can subscribe at or call 1-800-341-4769.

The Gardener is another non-advertising production. It is unique in not using photographs. It is illustrated throughout in a variety of stunning styles. They offered me a credit worth $20 for plants or seeds with my subscription. Go to or call them at 1-877-257-5268.
Herbals that include cultural instructions are good additions to your library.


Steven Foster's Herbal Bounty is a classic on "The Gentle Art of Herb Culture." Unfortunately, it is now out of print, but you may be able to find one used. (c. 1984, Peregrine Smith Books). He gives detailed information on the culture, and medicinal uses, of over 100 popular herbs.

Park's Success with Herbs is also out of print but a book that I use constantly. Gertrude Foster and Rosemary Louden fill just under 200 pages with an incredible amount of information on growing and using (lots of recipes) an amazing variety of herbs.

When you try too hard, it doesn’t work. We learn to work with the slow interplay of Yin and Yang. We learn to be in harmony with nature's laws. Forcing things to fit or going against the grain is an unskillful way. We learn to be flexible like water. We use our intuition. We hold, energetically, a magical spot of ground and watch what grows. In Taoism they call it "Wu Wei". We walk in the "effortless", we dance with the fairies, moving in joyful flow with the undulating, magical greenery blowing in the breeze.

Wow! You have a garden! With patience, good weather, and the grace of the Goddess, you and Nature will create a thing of beauty.

Questions -- And Answers -- About Nourishing Herbal Infusions

by Susun S Weed c. 2002

click here to learn how to make infusion

Can I use fresh herbs instead of dried herbs when making my nourishing herbal infusion?
No. The herbs I use for my nourishing herbal infusions -- such as nettle, oatstraw, red clover, comfrey leaf, linden flowers, chickweed, or mullein leaves -- contain little or no volatiles to be lost in drying. Rather, drying liberates their minerals and other nourishing constitutents.

Can I brew my infusion as "sun tea"?
No. It is important to pour boiling water over the dried herb to help liberate the minerals.

How can I make nourishing herbal infusion for lots of people?
When we make nourishing herbal infusion for 30 at the Wise Woman Center, we begin by boiling 4 gallons of water in our biggest pot. Then we add one pound of herb (16 ounces in one pound, and 16 quarts in 4 gallons), stirring well until the water boils again. We cover the pot well with a tight-fitting lid, turn off the fire, and allow to steep right there overnight.

Can I make enough infusion to last for a whole week?
No. It is best to make infusion fresh each day. Once made, nourishing herbal infusions spoil rapidly. Refrigeration lengthens the time the infusion is good to drink. Depending on many factors, including the herb used and the indoor temperature during the brewing, refrigerated infusion is usually good for at least 24 hours, sometimes as much as 72 hours.

How can you tell if your infusion has spoiled?
If a nourishing herbal infusion tastes funny, smells odd, and/or has bubbles in it, it is no longer fit to drink.

What can you do with spoiled infusion?
All is not lost; spoiled infusion makes a perfectly good hair rinse and a superb plant food.

Are infusions safe for children?
Not only are nourishing herbal infusions safe for children, children love nourishing herbal infusions. Children who drink nourishing herbal infusions instead of fruit juice are frequently healthier and more robust.

What's wrong with fruit juice?
Fruit juices are really quite sweet: drinking them daily can promote tooth decay and obesity. They are expensive, and actually contain little nutrients in proportion to calories. Nourishing herbal infusions, even if sweetened with honey, have a much more favorable nutrient density to calorie ratio. (Caution: Do not give honey to infants under one year of age).

Can I drink too much nourishing herbal infusion? Or eat too much seaweed?
Your may be astonished by your desires for nourishing herbs once you begin to use them regularly. This is quite common. When you have absorsbed all the minerals you need, your cravings will naturally disappear. So, no, it is not really possible to drink too much nourishing herbal infusion or eat too much seaweed.

Is it true that you don't take supplements?
It is. I haven't taken supplements for more than 25 years. I do eat a healthy whole foods diet, drink nourishing herbal infusions daily, consume lots of yogurt, and take time for my weekly (for 35 years) yoga, and twice-a- week (for 5 years) tai chi classes.

How much infusion do you drink?
I drink 2-4 cups of nourishing herbal infusion a day, plus I use several tablespoons of mineral- rich herbal vinegaars on my wild salad daily, and plenty of garlic, onions, mushrooms, seaweed.

How do you like to take your herbal infusion?
I prefer to drink my nourishing herbal infusion iced. Although I may prefer my comfrey infusion hot and with honey if the wind is howling and the snow blowing outside. Some salt or miso or umeboshi vinegar in nettle infusion is another interesting variation I enjoy.

Green Blessings!

Nettle Beer
Violet Syrup

Nettle Beer

One of the most delightful medicines for joint pain I've ever taken.

1 pound/500g raw sugar
2 lemons
1 ounce/30g cream of tartar
5 quarts/5 liters water
2 pounds/1 kilo nettle tops
1 ounce/30g live yeast
  Place sugar, lemon peel (no white), lemon juice, and cream of tartar in a large crock. Cook nettles in water for 15 minutes. Strain into the crock and stir well. When this cools to blood warm, dissolve the yeast in a little water and add to your crock. Cover with several folds of cloth and let brew for three days. Strain out sediment and bottle. Ready to drink in eight days.  

Violet Syrup

Yield 3 cups/750ml
Preparation time: Hours and hours of picking await you, and all in pursuit of some purple-solored sugar water. Or is there more to it than that?Perhapse aunt Violet will open a gateway to ecstacy for you.
1/2 pound/225g fresh violets
2 cups/500ml water
2 cups/500ml honey
  Enlist all the help you can to pick violet blossoms. Boil water; pour over blossoms; cover. Let steep overnight in nonmetallic container. Strain out flowers. Reserve purple liquid. Combine violet infusion adn honey. Simmer gently, stirring, for ten or fifteen minutes, until it seems like syrup. Fill clean jars. Cool. Keep well chilled to preserve.  


2 cups/500ml rolled oats
1/2 tsp/3ml baking powder
1/2 tsp/3ml salt
1 cup/250ml oats
2 tablespoons/30ml olive oil
6-8 Tbs/90-120ml hot water
1/2 cup/125ml rolled oats


Grind rolled oats to a fine meal in a blender or grinder. You'll get about 1 1/2 cup/375ml meal. Mix this with baking powder, salt, 1 cup/250ml unground oats, and oil. add just enough to form a ball of dough. Make it two balls. Sprinkle just a little oats on your counter and roll out each ball (adding more oats as needed) to two hand-spans wide (9 inches/25cm). Cut each circle into 6-8 wedges. Cook on a cookie sheet at 350F/80C for 15 minutes, or in a cast-iron skillet for eight minutes to a side.

Judy's Organic Herbs - Committed to organic or wildcrafted herbs which have been harvested with honour to the plants and respect to the planet. They sow, cultivate and harvest by hand, as they honour each plant as a wise ally. Judy and her apprentices are busy in the gardens, fields and forest: building new beds, planting, harvesting and making medicine. Their 24 acre farm is a jewel nestled in the Ottawa Valley in Ontario near the historic Ottawa River and the city of Ottawa.



Gardening by the Moon Simple, clear explanation of "planting by the moon". Planting by the moon is an idea as old as agriculture, based both in folklore and superstition, but there are scientific ideas to back it up. Just as the moon pulls the tides in the oceans, it also pulls upon the subtle bodies of water, causing moisture to rise in the earth, which encourages germination and growth. Each moon phase influences growth, so pay attention to the type of plant; whether it's root or leaf growth you want and when it's best to harvest.

Lady Barbara's "Weeds and Wild Things" Barbara Hall, the "109th apprentice" of Susun Weed, is the bellydancing hostess of this enchanted site. WEEDS AND WILD THINGS about covers the highest form of delight that I discover in the process of gardening, and I find that sharing that delight expands it. I hope never to spend a single year in my life where I don't come upon a new plant that I have never met before. Includes articles on Chickweed, dandelion, Violet, Motherwort, Plantain, and much more. Of special importance is Barbara's work with herbs to treat her Lyme's Disease.

How poor are you?

One day a father of a very wealthy family took his son on a trip to the country with the firm purpose of showing his son how poor people can be. They spent a couple of days and nights on the farm of what would be considered a very poor family. On their return from their trip, the father asked his son, "How was the trip?" "It was great, Dad." "Did you see how poor people can be?" the father asked. "Oh Yeah" said the son. "So what did you learn from the trip?" asked the father. The son answered, "I saw that we have one dog and they had four. We have a pool that reaches to the middle of our garden and they have a creek that has no end. We have imported lanterns in our garden and they have the stars at night. Our patio reaches to the front yard and they have the whole horizon. We have a small piece of land to live on and they have fields that go beyond our sight. We have servants who serve us, but they serve others. We buy our food, but they grow theirs. We have walls around our property to protect us, they have friends to protect them." With this the boy's father was speechless. Then his son added, "Thanks dad for showing me how poor we are."

Herbal Medicine Chest

Poke (Phytolacca americana)

That strange-looking weed with the drooping black berries that towers over gardens and roadsides throughout much of eastern North America is pokeweed—an old favorite of wise women dealing with breast lumps and breast cancer. If I felt a suspicious lump, I’d reach for poke root oil. It reduces congestion, relieves swelling, and literally dissolves growths in the breasts.

Jethro Kloss, author of the classic herbal Back to Eden, used freshly grated raw poke root poultices to burn away breast cancer. Caution: Fresh poke placed directly on the skin is strong enough to damage healthy tissues as well as cancerous ones.

The infused oil is also effective and far safer. A generous amount is gently applied to the lump, covered with a flannel cloth and then with a hot water bottle (no heating pads), and left on for as long as you’re comfortable. This is repeated at least twice a day. Poke root oil is too powerful for regular preventive care. Caution: Poke oil can cause a rash on sensitive skin. Ingestion of poke oil can cause severe intestinal distress.

Poke root tincture can be used instead of poke root oil. The properties are quite similar, though the oil is absorbed better and may be considerably more effective.

Other Names: Cancer root, kermesberro, skookum, ink berry

Type: Potentially poisonous

Found in: Gardens (as a weed) and roadsides of northeastern North America; easily cultivated; naturalized in Europe, Australia.

Part Used: One- or two-year-old roots, dug after first frost, fresh only; berries, before frost, fresh or dried—do not chew.

Actions & Uses: Resolves cysts, lumps, and some in situ breast cancers; stimulates immune system; counters infection (especially pneumonia); protects lungs; relieves lymph congestion; antiviral; antiseptic; anti-tumor; anti-cancer. Used externally and internally.

Important Constituents: Acids, antioxidants, alkaloids, carotenes, phytosterols, pokeweed-antiviral-protein, saponins, tannins, resins (root only).

Preparation & Daily Dose: Used with caution for short periods; rarely for more than 10 months.

Tincture of fresh (not dried) root: 1–20 drops.

Fresh berry juice preserved with honey: 4 teaspoons/20ml.

Dried berries: 1–4 swallowed whole. Seeds are poisonous.

Oil/ointment/poultice of fresh roots: with care.

Toxicity: Caution! All parts of fresh or dried poke—except berries with unbroken seeds and well-cooked young leaves—can cause such intense vomiting, diarrhea, and pain that you don’t know which end to point at the toilet. This is frequently accompanied by out-of-the-body sensations, but rarely leads to death. (I felt a little "spacey" when I swallowed two dried berries as an anti-inflammatory against joint pain one evening.) The numerous seeds are only toxic if crushed, and are too hard for children (and most adults) to break. I’ve read of skin rashes caused by handling fresh poke, but have never personally experienced such problems. Alkaloids in poke root tincture can accumulate in the kidneys, making extended use risky, though some people have taken doses of 15 drops a day for a year or more without apparent harm.

Works Well With: Echinacea.

Results & Notes: Poke root tincture kicks the immune system into gear incredibly fast. I’ve seen chronic infection of many years’ standing begin to resolve after only one dose, and acute infection subside in a matter of hours. Poke’s effect seems to be focused on the lymphatic and glandular tissues of the breasts, ovaries, throat, and uterus, where it reliably resolves cysts, growths, infections, and swellings. First-hand reports attest to the ability of fresh poke root poultices to burn away tumors, including breast cancers. Phytolacca is a standard homeopathic remedy against breast cancer. Women at high-risk of developing breast cancer may wish to follow advice from Traditional Chinese Medicine and use one drop of poke tincture daily from the beginning of May until mid-June yearly as a preventive. To be assured of a supply of poke tincture, I make it myself, as it is rarely found for sale.
