This in-the-field series will devote an hour to each plant, including time spent identifying, harvesting, and processing it into remedies or food. This unique opportunity to get to know common, useful medicinal plants takes advantage of the scenic gardens, fields, woodlands, and garden barn of the historic Canterbury Shaker Village. Be prepared to be outdoors as classes will be held rain or shine with a combination of outdoor and indoor (when necessary) activities. The workshops include samples of each herb, remedies, and extensive notes. Take one workshop or take them all! You are encouraged to create a herbarium and to take photographs of the plants we meet. Please wear weather appropriate clothing and footwear; a notebook and camera are encouraged but not required.
August 18 – Peak Flavor
In August, many culinary and tea herbs achieve peak flavor and should be harvested before flavors begin to weaken or get bitter. You will delve into delicious herbs including mint, bee balm, and tarragon to dry for tea and or to save in the spice cabinet. You will also make culinary vinegar and a raw honey.
