HAHA HI its me again! So i was looking at my shipping prices and trying to consolidate them when i realized that printful, the company i use to print this tote and this mug, had imported a bunch of shipping profiles into my etsy which made shipping ABSURDLY EXPENSIVE for these items!! I thought it was meant to be all automatic, but it messed up the shipping. ANYWAY if you wanted to order any of these products, the shipping prices are now more reasonable. SO SORRY for the confusion. These will also be shipping from the states or from europe, so if you are not based in canada, this can bypass the canadian postal strike! I'm thinking of adding more items via printful if this all goes well, so stay tuned! #printful #gayfornature #theforagersclub

Hey friends! I've been designing some new things and taking a bit of a break, but i popped on here to say that all my digital prints like this mars and arnica print are 50% off in my etsy! I want to move away from digital prints so i've slashed all their prices. I think this sale goes until the end of september? #sale #theforagersclub #natureart #botanicalprint #illustratorsoninstagram

HAPPY NEW MOON SOLAR ECLIPSE IN CANCER!! Wow that was a mouthful. Until the full moon on the 27th of July, i've put these patches at 50% off! I want to get rid of them so i can start designing new patches! This means this patch design won't be available once they sell out!! So if you've been waiting to order, NOW IS THE TIME!! Link in my bio to my shop! Honestly i am SO EXCITED to design new products for y'all and to start to work on my herbalism and integrate that into my business too! I appreciate your patience and sticking around on this account while i figure out how to do things!! ๐ŸŒน๐ŸŒฑ๐Ÿ˜š sending all my plant love!! #patch #irononpatch #theforagersclub #foraging #plantmagic #greenwitch #plantwitch #plantmedicine #wildfood #borealforest

i was feeling ungrounded here in the city so i went to high park and harvested some motherwort. motherwort is a plant thats been calling me lately. i know its a heart plant (its latin name is Leonurus Cardiaca, cardiaca being a direct reference to the heart). it helps with menstral cramps and supports the circulatory system and is incredibly bitter. what i am interested in, though, is its calming effects; apparently it helps anxiety a lot. โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ € โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ € in my intuitive plant medicine course with @onewillow_apothecaries , i have learned a lot about trusting your intuition to lead you to the medicine you need. obviously this doesnt mean you shouldn't positively identify the plant you are using, or that you dont need to research the uses and dangers of the plant! but it means letting your heart guide you to the plants you most resomate to and finding out how or whether to harvest them or use them safely. โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ € โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ € anyway, my heart pulled me to motherwort. it doesnt grow in the yukon and i've been thinking about it the past 2-3 months, waiting for this moment when i can fully introduce myself. anyone have some cool motherwort resources or tips?? โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ € #plantwitch #greenwitch #herbalism #theforagersclub #motherwort #leonuruscardiaca #plantmagic

Dreaming of the yukon these days (where i will be for may and june, working and foraging away!) And the shocking abundance of the boreal forest and the tundra. In this photo i am laying in dwarfed birch, lichen, labrador tea, blueberry, mossberry, and much more. Even though this part of the world has low biodiversity, there is still such abundance and incredible plant and animal life, all of which has traditionally been used for everything from clothing to medicine to food by the various first nations in the yukon. Tombstone park is the traditional territory of the Tr'ondek Hwech'in and i am forever grateful for their knowledge and for their letting us live on their land. * * * #cultivategratitude #foragers #foragersdream #theforagersclub #plantlove #plantmedicine #trondekhwechin #tombstoneterritorialpark #exploreyukon #yukon

Happy Valentines?? i drew this wild rose situation last night while listening to the newest podcast by @mythicmedicine , which if you havent listened to it, please do!! Her whole podcast is full of stories that are basically a balm for the heart (hence the name 'medicine stories') and its my favourite podcast right now. She describes it as being about "death, ancestors, plants and psychadelics" among other things (like transitions, intuition, and other stuff). I promise it isnt as woo woo as it sounds? (or maybe it is but its a good kind of woo woo). (maybe i'm woo woo now idk). anyway! this podcast made me cry in a rideshare on my way to ottawa this week if that is any indication (i dont cry easily). check it out!! (one thing is that i wish there was a little more trans and non-binary representation or acknowledgement in the podcast but her guests sometimes include those things when she forgets! just a small note. still an excellent podcast though!! nothing's perfect.) * * * * #medicinestoriespodcast #theforagersclub #foragersclub #wildrose #plantmagic #plantmedicine #herbalism #ancestors #plantlove

Honestly, this book is such a wonderful read. It fills me with so many feelings; the idea of trees as social beings. Trees that take care of each other, that have community, that keep loved elders alive. Its written by an ex forester too, probably the least "woo woo" of any of the tree industries, and based on a lot of data and observations from the forestry industry. Honestly it really highlights the neccessity behind keeping old growth forests and not simply replanting, which completely disrupts the social structure, root connections, and mycelial connections between the trees. Anyway, if you get a chance, read this book. ๐ŸŒฒ๐ŸŒณ * * * #thehiddenlifeoftrees #peterwohlleben #whatimreading #plantmagic #plantlove #plantmedicine #theforagersclub #foragersclub #plantsofinstagram #plantlady

Hi hello hello my lovelies! I put this here print in my etsy shop, so now you can buy a piece of this art without having to pay the high cost of an original artwork!! Its printed with @posterjack and its printed on a heavy rag paper so it looks like the original drawing. I'm pretty jazzed about these! More prints will be available soon (on different kinds of paper too, for different price ranges) so keep an eye out! * * * * #theforagersclub #torontoartist #illustratorsofinstagram #illustrator #etsyseller #watercolour #plantmagic #etsyshop #torontoetsy #instaart #natureart #artistsoninstagram

Everyone in my house is sick and i am probably also going to get sick, so i'm making myself this sick-tea with herbs i foraged and dried myself (rose petals, labrador tea, coltsfoot, red clover, fireweed flowers), herbs my friends have picked and dried and gifted to me (nettles, yarrow), and herbs i've bought from herbalists and Trondek Hwechin folks (rhodiola, chamomile, gotu kola, green tea, rosemary, juniper). My stash of herbs is small but enough for me and my bae! I hope one day to have such abundance that i can make things for everyone! Becoming an herbalist is something that i'm looking at for my future. * * * #plantmedicine #foragersclub #theforagersclub #plantbased #herbaltea #herbalist #herbalism #queerherbalism

โ€œI withdraw from people and places from time to time, I need space from a world that is filled with millions of mouths that talk too much but never have anything to say.โ€ ~Kaitlin Foster . . . I have retreated recently to find and create space for myself in a world that demands our attention at every second. Always with a cellphone always without sense of self. . . . . Reminding myself to give back to my space and myself. Here is a picture showing part of the process for this delicious eastern hemlock body scrub. Healing for the inside and out.

Whipping up a yummy batch of winter Eastern Hemlock body scrub! ๐ŸŒฒ๐ŸŒฒ๐ŸŒฒ๐ŸŒฒ๐ŸŒฒ๐ŸŒฒ๐ŸŒฒ๐ŸŒฒ๐ŸŒฒ๐ŸŒฒThe Eastern Hemlockโ€™s whispy branches have many needles that I grind with fine ground Himalayan salt and coconut oil. This delicious scrub can be used in a steamy shower or a hot bath, becoming an instant natural approach to fighting those winter colds, fevers and cough! Donโ€™t be afraid to crank the heat, linger long and breath in deeply and slowly! Both the bark and needles are also excellent sources of vitamin C. Back in the day itโ€™s bark was stripped and ground to make poultices and used for treating bleeding wounds. Teaโ€™s of needles and branches could be steeped to fight scurvy, rheumatism and promote kidney health!

Here are some patch ideas i am toying around with; maybe i should make stickers first? I dunno!! Let me know what you think!! The two top left would be shaped patches; both are different drawings of milkweed. One of the circle patches is of some gay mushrooms (inspired by the gayest mushroom hunter i know @hi_priestess) and the other is a patch of some local ontario wildflowers; milkweed, goldenrod, and aster. I also doodled a plantain with the word "naturalize" behind it inspired by Robin Wall Kimmerer's writings on plantain as a helpful naturalized plant; not sure if this would be made into a patch though because i would have to suss out whether she was comfortable with me making a patch inspired by her work. Tell me what you think though?? Thoughts, suggestions, ideas, etc? ๐ŸŒฟ #robinwallkimmerer #braidingsweetgrass #etsyseller #etsyshop #etsy #plantmedicine #theforagersclub #foragers #patch #stickers #botany #plant #plantsofinstagram #foragingforfood #ethnobotany
