Description

Join herbalist Amy Shea for a day exploring Wisconsin’s lovely spring ephemeral plants.

In the Morning

We will identify several plants, and focus our attention on three for more in depth discussion:

  • Wisconsin’s state flower, the wood violet (Viola sororia)

  • Bloodroot (Sanguinaria canadensis)

  • Trilium (Trillium grandiflorum)


What will we talk about:

  • Plant characteristics and habitat preferences

  • Each plant’s medicinal properties

  • Practical use history and modern day research findings

  • Contraindications, possible side effects, and cautionary information

  • Most common applications for use

  • Any herbal folklore and plant spirit widsom

We will break for a nourishing lunch prepared for us on site by Donna Justin.

The Afternoon portion of the day will include:

  • Discussion on making herbal teas also called tisanes
  • We will discuss the difference between an herbal tea, an herbal infusion and an decoction.

  • You will have the opportunity to blend your own, which you will get to keep

All materials, and lunch are included in this class.

Early Bird Special Available. Group Rates for groups of 4 or more, contact Amy Shea to learn more about this option.
