Learn Plant Magic
In this class you will be introduced to the bounty of Iowa’s “weeds”. Learn to identify various plants used by our ancestors for healing & magic.
Ditch Witchery is Plant Magic
Ditch Witchery is a form of Kitchen Witchcraft. It is herbalism and plant magic. A witch practicing ditch witchery uses whatever is handy for magical and/or healing purposes. Local weeds such as Queen Anne’s Lace or dandelions can be used in spells or healing tinctures. For example, Stinging Nettle can be a problem (and painful!) weed in the middle of your flowers. However, it’s great for protection magic and also full of healing nutrients when made into an infusion.
