I have been working on an field guide to herbal/plant medicine in Nipmuc Country (central MA, northwest RI, northeast CT). I put the book aside for a couple of years during covid since working at a hospital didn’t leave much free time or relaxed time to write.
Why this Guide?
Our Nipmuc ancestors used plants to maintain their health and bring balance into their lives. For many years, a millennium of knowledge was lost to us. Over the last decade, Nipmuc women have worked to recreate our ancient pharmacopeia and re-introduce plant medicine into our community. This book is a small step in our journey to reestablish our relationship with the land and heal ourselves physically, spiritually, and emotionally.
