New Workshop: Plant Medicine for Cold and Flu Season
It’s that time of year where we start turning to our local plants as medicinal allies. Come join us for a day of medicinal plant exploration. We will introduce you to the basics of plant medicine through plant identification and hands-on medicine making. This class will focus on local herbs that can be used for the Cold and Flu season.
We will make Medicinal Foods, Syrups and Tinctures. And we will go over at-home recipes and remedies that will keep you and your family healthy throughout the Fall and Winter.
This class is intended to deepen your connection to the plant world while learning how our green allies can help your family's health and well-being. Ages 12 and up (8+ with an adult). Instructor: Rachael Witt
Date and Time: Saturday, Nov. 3, 9:30 am to 1:30 pm
