Dandelion Love with herbalist Dawn Petter
The dandelion is one of the worlds’ most widespread weeds, maligned by gardeners, but adored by herbalists and foragers. From the top of the flower to the bottom of the root, this weed is a potent botanical healer and wild food. As one of nature’s best vitamin pills, the dandelion has the ability to transform your digestion, your mood and even your aches and pains.
In honor of Honey’s delicious dandelion wine, this class will explore how to make herbal remedies from the roots and leaves, syrups from the flowers, ferments from the buds, and other enticing edible treats from the leaves and stems. Come and fall in love with the dandelion in this fun herbal tribute. This is the third and final class in the series. Pre-register for two classes and take the third for free.
