Mugwort Harvesting Festival (Free Community Event!)
Tue, May 30, 2017, 12:00 PM – 1:30 PM EDT
This day is the 5th day of the 5th lunar month - an ancient,traditional day to harvest Mugwort. Come one, come all, for our annual harvest of the Mugwort herb, a spectacular and widely used medicinal plant.
Mugwort is used for many things - as an herb to help with dream work, as a medicinal tea for a variety of ills, and it can also be prepared into Moxa, a loose herb that is burned to warm and stimulate acupuncture points as well as various injuries.
We will have a short talk about Mugwort, its history of use and its properties, and then we will engage in some community harvesting of this lovely plant! Mugwort tea will be available to sip on.
Please note: To make sure we know how many people are coming, we require a $5 seat-saver deposit. You will receive back your deposit in full upon arrival!
