Sun, May 7, 3 – 5 pm: Rosemary Bath Salts

Come harvest fresh wild Rosemary from the garden and create your own medicinal bath salts. We will go deeply into the materia medica of the plant Rosemary, how it is best grown, uses, and medicinal qualities of the plant. During the class we will sip on delicious Rosemary iced and hot tea. See you at the garden!

Sun, June 4, 3 – 5 pm, Creating an Herbal Journal and Sacred Plant Diets

Discover the hidden realm of understanding herbs through creating your own journal decorated with live/dried plants, pictures, and art. You will learn how to use the journal you create for tracking plants you diet, the moon phases, plants you meet in the wild/gardens and a beginner's understanding of the Doctrine of Signatures.

Learn how to understand one herb at a time deeply on your own through plant diets. This will help you begin a personal herbal healing journey. We will use the plants in the gardens to find an ally for the day to help us begin our journey.

Use this journal for the learning of the next three workshops and the whole herbal season of 2017.



Sun, July 9, 3 – 5 pm, Harvesting Herbs -- How to Dry or Use Fresh for Remedies

Learn how to harvest herbs from the garden, dry them, or use them fresh. In this class we will find some herbs in the garden ready for harvesting and learn how to dry them. We will also learn about herbs that are best using fresh and what remedies are best for using dry. I will go over herbal infusions, oils, fresh plant teas, poultices, and more.

Leave the garden with plants to keep drying at home!



Sun, August 6, 3 – 5 pm, Herbal Infused Honeys and Oils

Infusion station!!!! Let us make fresh herbal honey from plants from the garden all while enjoying Herbal Infused tea. Herbal honey infusions are a great way to enjoy the medicinal properties of plants in a sweet way.
