Herbal collage

Enrolling now for the basic herb workshop and herb walks in June!

Come and learn the basics of herbal medicine. We will learn how to identify and use the plants we see, grow and harvest. Even if you have taken this class before you can always join us. There is something to learn for everyone. We will start with an herb walk on Friday June 26th from 9:30 A.M – 12:30 P.M., meeting at the mouth of Lamb’s canyon (exit 137) just off of I-80 up Parley’s canyon. We will spend a few hours identifying and talking about the plants we find. On Saturday morning we will start with another herb walk at my home from 10:00 A.M. – 12:00 P.M. There will be a 1 hour break for lunch (on your own) and then we will meet back at my house for the hands on portion of our class from 1:00 P.M – 4:00 P.M.  We will go over how to make the following herbal medicine that will give you a broad range of uses:

Infusions (herbal tea)
Decoctions - Syrups
Herbal Vinegars - Oxymels
Poultices
Infused Herbal Oils - Herbal Salves
Creams/Lotions
Glycerite/Tincture/Elixir

You will go home with 6 items from the class. (syrup, oxymel, poultice blend, salve, cream, and tincture). Price is $40 including the herb walks and hands on class. There is also an option to just do the herb walks for $20. Class capacity is 20 to maintain social distancing. If you are unable to attend the hands on class you can pick up your kit at your convenience.  No refunds. Deadline to sign up for the workshop is June 20th.  Please sign up through my events page. Feel free to send any questions you may have through my contact page.
