Take a basket with you on your Herb Walks this fall. In it, place a trowel, a knife, heavy duty scissors, and a brush for harvesting Herb roots. You may want small paper bags, a pencil, and your favorite field guide. Remember to harvest with Mother Earth in mind... [See Wildcrafting] She is sharing with you. You will be able to harvest Bonset tops, Dogwood berries, Elder bark, Fringetree root bark, American Ginseng root, Goldenrod tops, Joe Pye root, Lobelia root, Pipsissewa leaf, Sarsaparilla root, Sumach berries, Wild Cherry bark, Wild Ginger root, Wild Hydrangea root bark, Wild Yam root, and Yellowroot root.
