Bitters/Plant Making Medicine Workshop with Elana Metzman
Saturday, October 1 from 2 ~4 pm
If you’re feeling bogged down by the indulgence of summer sweetness (bbqs, brews, & berry pies, anyone?), daily bitters could help jump-start your digestive tract, so it’s running as freely as the beads of sweat on your iced tea glass. And if you’re not feeling the above way, but have curiosity in herbal medicine-making and adding to your DIY skills, well this class is for you!
Come out to Jim Duke’s Green Farmacy Garden for a medicine-making workshop with a focus on bitter plants. During the workshop, we will tour the garden and choose a variety of bitters to make a collective blend tincture. You will learn specific tincture (alcohol-extraction) techniques, the many health and digestive benefits of bitter herbs, and how bitters sneak their way into your palate.
I have prepared a bitters blend tincture to offer you to take home from the class. Please bring a 1oz. tincture bottle, small jar, or if unable to bring, I will provide one for an additional $2.
The workshop cost is $15-20 (sliding scale). No one will be turned away for lack of funds.
Please RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org so I can prepare materials accordingly. More information and the address will be sent after you register through email.
