Knotweed Talk with the Fayston Forager

Saturday, January 18, 2020 - 12:00pm to 3:00pm


Mad River Taste Place 89 Mad River Green Waitsfield


The Taste Place is excited to welcome Marge Keough the Fayston Forager. Marge is making a tincture that uses the invasive knotweed plant to help with lyme disease symptoms. The process uses the bark and deep orange fiber from local, wild-harvested, old-growth Japanese Knotweed rhizomes (a potent source of resveratrol) is hand-shaved and chopped into fine pieces. Extraction methods follow Stephen Buhner, author of Healing Lyme, and Steven Martyn/ The Sacred Gardener protocols and processes to maximize the medicinal potency of this tincture, which is made in small batches, using 80-100 proof grain alcohol and pure Vermont spring water.  Marge is a wealth of knowledge and we are so excited to have her.
