The Spring Equinox is a time of rebirth, a perfect opportunity to purify and replenish our bodies and our spirits, welcoming new beginnings and balance.
Join us to experience our beautiful local herbs of Spring renewal. We are offering two Saturday class dates; you may sign up for either day, or receive a discount if you signup for both. We’ll focus on different herbs and herbal preparations in each of the two classes. It all depends on which plants are growing at the time. Students with all levels of herbal knowledge are welcome. If you are new to herbal medicine, this is your chance to jump in!!
Each class will include a woodland expedition to identify and learn about herbs available at this season. Then we’ll head to the kitchen and make herbs into medicine. You’ll taste and experience these remedies, also taking home recipes and samples.
You will prepare and enjoy salads and smoothies of mixed wild-foraged Spring greens; medicinal teas and nutritive tonics; and herbal tinctures/fluid extracts that support liver, kidney, and skin health. You’ll also create ceremonial smudge sticks that are burned to clear old, stale energy and to connect us to positive healing.
