For thousands of years, people have been harvesting medicines from their home gardens for basic family needs. This is a dynamic and hands-on introduction to the art and practical application of garden herbalism. We will spend over half our time outdoors in an herbal garden where we will harvest common herbs and discuss their uses and cultivation. We will then bring them into the herbal pharmacy classroom and learn how to make effective teas, oils and remedies for commonly encountered health challenges including but not limited to stress, sleeplessness, indigestion, and minor wounds.
By effectively preparing and using herbs, we inspire and empower the healer within. This work rejuvenates the senses and steeps us in the wonder of nature's healing powers. Participants will be exposed to an abundance of practical and easily implemented information, and will get the opportunity to bring a sampling of plants into their own home gardens.
