Every Fourth Tuesday of the month, we will be gathering from 7 to 9 p.m. These meetings are by donation, so pay what you can afford! These days, a lot of people can't afford to go to our regular classes, and rather than have folks go without herbal education, I'm donating my time and some fun plant medicines to our growing, wonderful family of herbal enthusiasts.
So if you've been putting off coming to classes because you couldn't afford the $20 class fee, you now have NO excuse! Pay what you can (suggested donation of $5 - $10) and come learn and play with some incredible people every month!
These gatherings are less structured than our usual classes, but will be a great source of herbal education, they'll be VERY fun, and we'll have an additional opportunity to hang out and play together.
I'll leave some time near the end for a Q & A session, so bring Questions, and we'll try to find answers together!
June's study group will focus on the third Roots of Healing Plant Ally for 2014: Mugwort! We will discuss the effects of mugwort, looking at the various species, tasting and comparing them, and discussing the differences. We may venture also into other Artemisias. I have a HUGE garden filled with mugwort, so I will bring a lot to share with everyone! If you would like to take a plant home for your garden, please bring a pot to transplant it into.
We encourage class participation in study groups (not required, but encouraged!). So take an aspect of this plant and study for yourself, and bring it to share with everyone. So many avenues to explore: indigenous use, magical and spiritual aspects, botany, foods, skin/hair care, chemistry, toxicity, entheogenics, it's all fascinating and all welcome!
