this isn't a financial question and isn't the proper place to put this but I know you'll see it here. In the woodbine site I see them growing woodbine ..which I grow extensively here. I have always been told it is not edible and possibly toxic..if you know differently I would like to know..thanks.

Hi Brenda, they grow it as a medicinal. I don't know more than that, I just track the edible stuff.

thanks, I'll have to do a little more research into it even as a medicinal, as I have tons of that stuff growing here and I love it as a landscaping plant esp in the fall.

Pretty but quite poisonous. Talk to Mary O'Brien, she does their medicinal workshops. Send me an email at toensmeier AT gmail.com and I'll pass on her info.
