Fall Intern Update 2012


The fall internship is quite different then the spring internship because the fall is an opportunity to collect seeds, prune back woody shrubs, dig roots, clear summer storm damage from trails, pull invasive plants and put gardens to bed. This fall the interns had a special guest teacher Peter Heus, of Enchanter's Garden, from Hinton WV. Peter, as the owner of a native plant nursery, is a master seed collector and wizard of native plant propagation. Interns have been busy - digging and packing all those goldenseal roots for you, our members, and using the goldenseal to make Kloss’s liniment. If you up to it here’s a great website on how to make your own: http://www.learningherbs.com/jethro_kloss.html.
Interns make many other types of medicine, along with drying herbs, and collecting seeds from our heart pond and prairie: rose mallow hibiscus, ludwigia, liatris, and indiangrass. Seeds of the fringe tree, passionflower, and the green dragon (Arisaema dracontium), are also collected and processed. Interns each week have a class with local plant folks from the community, thanks to Diane Don Carlos, David Keller, Hank Huggins, Paul Strauss, Rebecca Wood, Chip Carroll and Caty Crabb. Beyond the perimeter of the Sanctuary is a deep network of talented herb folks that share herbal wisdom with the intern. Interns leave with a deep sense of how it takes a community of plants and people to truly walk the talk of native medicinal plant conservation.
