Discovering our native, wild and medicinal plants: why our living ecology is so paramount at this time


Presenter: Lori Snyder, Indigenous Herbalist and Educator

Discover our wild, native and medicinal plants that are growing outside our door. The wild weeds, the ones our ancestors ate who offer lessons on how to be a good guest. Who are our native plants and why they are so important for our local ecology and the gifts and teachings they bring. And who are the medicines we can grow in our gardens to make teas, salves, tinctures, incense and who help us build good relationships with our living world. Practices of reciprocity where we take care of each other, honourable harvest, respect for our Mother, remembering our responsibility, and giving thanks with reverence.

Sustaining Frankincense in the 21st Century

Presenter: Stephen Johnson

The webinar will focus on the conservation statuses, sustainability practices and challenges commonly traded frankincense (Boswellia spp.) species and community harvesters face. We will also touch on some tips for ethical sourcing of high quality frankincense essential oil.

Stephen Johnson has been working on the sustainability of wild-harvested products since 2016. He has conducted field research and analyses in West Africa (Burkina Faso, Ghana), East Africa (Ethiopia, Somaliland, Puntland), and the Arabian Peninsula (Oman), and has published almost a dozen peer-reviewed papers, book chapters, and reports on non-timber forest products, especially frankincense. As the founder of FairSource Botanicals, Stephen focuses on building socially, ecologically, and economically regenerative supply chains, as well as celebrating and promoting the brilliant rainbow of diversity in the scent, chemistry, and ecology of different frankincense and myrrh species. He also runs FrankincenseHoney.com, which uses honey production to provide additional value for the trees and to support propagation and regeneration of frankincense species.
