Event description

Description

Herbal Medicine is the medicine of the people. Traditionally, local knowledge of plants to support health, treat illness, & support pregnancy & birthing would have been passed down through families & communities (often from woman to woman) through the everyday work of growing & using plants, and orally through stories & teachings.

Come reclaim that missing link with the medicine of our ancestors. Allow me to pass on a cumulation of teachings from my herbal mentors & learn the foundational principles of Herbal Medicine Making the way it was intended—in community.

Learn how to prepare compresses & poultices, craft herbal tea blends for medicine & beauty, learn the art of infusing herbal oils & the many ways they can be transformed into support for the body (salves & balms, etc.), prepare herbal tinctures, vinegars, syrups & elixirs.

This class is hands-on so you can connect with the plants using all of your senses-taste, touch, smell, & of course, sight. We will be sharing the traditional uses of many herbs while touching on what we can grow here & how to harvest.

4 Part Kitchen Herbalist Apprenticeship Workshop Series Includes:

-Learning the foundational principles of herbal medicine making. When completed, you will have confidence to begin crafting your own herbal “farmacy" for yourselves & your family. I break this down into 4 sessions dedicated to 4 different aspects of Herbal Medicine:
Class 1: Plants & Water: Herbal Compresses, Poultices, Infusions, & Decoctions
Class 2: Plants & Alcohol: Tinctures & Elixirs
Class 3: Plants with Vinegar & Honey: Syrups, Infused Honeys & Herbal Vinegars
Class 4: Plants & Oils: Infused oils, Salves & Healing Balms
-All handouts & materials such as herbs, alcohol, apothecary bottles, etc.
-One of each of all of the herbal preparations we crafted to take home with you & share with your loved ones (average of 3-4 each class)
-Hands on instruction from Community Herbalist, herb gardener & plant medicine maker, Dionne Jennings
