Medicinal plants offer an elegant and effective tool kit for keeping healthy, as well as assuaging the severity and symptoms of cold and flu. Join Lindsay Perry of Full Flower Herbs for an initiation in natural remedies to help keep you and your family healthy this winter. You'll learn about plants to support and build the immune system, as well as plants to treat the symptoms of colds, including information on growing, foraging, and making your own plant medicine. Lindsay will demonstrate making elderberry syrup, which we'll then taste and bottle for each person to take home. You will also receive the recipe and detailed handouts on the material covered. This yummy remedy will become a mainstay in your winter care!
Lindsay Perry crafts the healing potions of Full Flower Herbs from her home in Durham. Lindsay wildcrafts with a bias for abundant, weedy plants, and reverence for plant communities. She also sources herbs from her garden and local sustainable farmers, to create truly sustainable, high quality herbal medicine. She learned to make and use plant medicine through study with local and regional teachers, including Kim Calhoun and the Chestnut School of Herbal Medicine. Lindsay is happiest tending her herb garden or filling a basket with wild medicinal flowers. Helping others find plant allies and deepen their connection to nature and Mama Earth are pretty wonderful too.
