Event description

Description

Plant chemistry- phytochemistry- may seem daunting and overwhelming at first; once you dive into it though, it becomes just another language we can use to connect with and understand plants. In this class, we will explore actions, energetics and tastes of the major classes of herbal constituents, and how learning about them can teach us new ways to use and interact with plants.

*Students will be emailed webinar link 20 minutes before class begins

Please note: This is an online class and will not be taking place at the shop :)
