Nature Walks

The third part is nature.

Most likely, within a few miles of your home there will be public gardens or wild lands that contain the native plants of your area.  Become familiar with these, make them your friends.  If all else fails, these will likely remain.  Consider a weed Well Met.

Be aware that many herbals (as in books that deal with herbs) will not include these plants because the "herbal" history of our world was written mostly in India, China and Europe.  If it is not in one of these three traditions, many people ignore it.

Still, could not wild lavender have the same properties as the cultivated version?  Wild Horehound, wild garlic, wild sage?
