About Jim McDonald

Herbalist and Educator Jim McDondald’s approach to the use of herbs is a blend of folk and indigenous perspectives with the eclectic/physio-medical approaches of 19th century American herbalism. He primarily uses and teaches about local plants he knows and trusts, though he certainly enjoys a draught of Kava and doesn’t begrudge a plant just because it doesn’t happen to live close by. He places the utmost importance in ethical wildcrafting to ensure that the plants used continue to thrive in their natural habitats.
