Come see the garden in its prime: our tropicals have settled in and filled out, the vines are full, grapes ripening and mints everywhere flowering. Annie will guide you through the garden’s 80 plots sharing medicinal plants used in global traditions for conditions from Arthritis to Toothache, from Parkinson’s to Viruses, and from PMS to baldness.
Workshops and Seminars
Foraged First Aid
Saturday, August 31, 2019 12-2pm
Join Katelyn Jarkowiec of Hey Thanks! Herbal Co. for this two hour class focusing on herbal first aid!
We’ll wander around Green Farmacy Garden, observe and gather herbs while we discuss how they can be used in first aid situations. We’ll cover basic wound treatment protocol, foraged first aid in the field, and how to make medicine with the plants you gather.
By the end of this class, you’ll have the knowledge to create your very own herbal first aid kit containing homemade remedies that reflect your personal health needs and the situations you are most likely to encounter!
Capturing the Essence of Herbs
Sunday, September 8, 2019 2-4:30pm
Once you’ve grown the herbs—what do you do with them? Culinary herbalist and author Susan Belsinger will discuss the fragrance and flavor of herbs, and will explain how and when to harvest herbs for optimum flavor, how to efficiently dry herbs, and the best ways to preserve them. This program concentrates on the culinary herbs and how to capture their essence in everything from making aromatic herbal pastes and herb butters to syrups and vinegars.
Susan will demonstrate preparation of some simple recipes from her new book, which participants may sample. Each student will create an herbal vinegar and syrup to take home with herbs from the Green Farmacy Garden.
We’ll gratefully welcome volunteers most Wednesdays and Thursdays between 11 and 4 from April through October! Please email to let us know when to expect you.
