September Herbal Medicine Making Workshop

Saturday, September 24, 2022, 11am-1pm

Learn how to harvest herbs, cultivated & wild, and how to make & work with different herbal infused medicines in this introductory workshop.

Traditional herbal medicine preparations go by many names – tincture, decoction, oxymel, infusion, glycerite, but what do they all mean? And why & when is each one worked with?

Join us to learn about harvesting herbs you can grow or find in the wild to make effective, safe, and powerfully healing medicinal preparations. We will discuss how to make and work with the following preparations: tinctures, teas, oils, vinegars, oxymels, glycerites and nourishing herbal infusions. We will craft a few medicines incorporating fresh and dried plants from the garden, a gorgeous living library of 300+ medicinal plant species from around the world. We will also explore and sample some herbal medicines from our apothecary. We will discuss how to incorporate these herbal remedies into your daily lifestyle as tonics, supplements, and medicine for mind, body, and spirit.

September Foraging Walk

Sunday, September 11, 2022, 2-4pm

Reconnect with your habitat by getting to know wild plants, learning to identify and harvest them for edible, medicinal, and other uses.

Wild edible and medicinal plants of late summer in our region include Passiflora, Shiso, Paw Paw, Autumn Olive/ Silverberry, Goldenrod, and more. We’ll meet these species and many more, including some to keep an eye out for in your travels so you’ll be ready when they come into season, including Persimmon and Black Walnut.

In this walk we’ll visit many plant species that grow commonly in a variety of ecological niches in our region, learning what growing conditions each prefers, what portion of the plant to harvest throughout the season, and how to align your foraging choices with responsible and interdependent ecological stewardship, reclaiming our place as full and worthy participants in – not alienated from – the dance of nature.
