While good food is one of the foundations of good health, our plant medicine allies—who grow in the wild and in our gardens—allow us to take care of many of the challenges that arise. Knowing plants as medicine and how to properly prepare them becomes a way of life and grounds us in a place the way few things do. When we walk through the fields and the woods and know the medicine that surrounds us, it changes our relationship to both our health and ecology.
Each time we meet during this twice-monthly series you'll gain knowledge, craft herbal remedies, and take home something special. You’ll learn to wildcraft herbs, create tinctures and salves, and use a steam still to make essential oils. Together we’ll engage in herbal self-care rituals, make teas, and discover how to use our natural medicines to support vibrant health. At the end of the summer, we’ll have our own home apothecary to draw upon and use with knowledgeable skill.
