Herbal Study Group!

  • Oct 15, 2013 · 7:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Tonight we're going to focus on growing medicinal herbs: I'll bring some of my favorite plants from my garden and we'll look at how to grow them, from seed or propagation from cuttings/division. I will bring soil, pots, and plants. Please bring some, too, if you have them to share. If not, no worries.

We'll be working outside, and it ought to be a lovely evening, though it may be a bit cool, so dress accordingly. And if you can bring a folding chair or cushion/blanket/whatever appropriate for outside seating, that would be lovely.
A box or basket to take home your goodies will also be helpful, as you'll likely have quite a few plants going home with you tonight.

Isn't it lovely to live in a climate where we can think of planting in October? This is Southern California's "second Spring", so let's take advantage of it and get some medicinal herbs into our gardens before the colder weather comes. Then, when "true" Spring arrives, you will see a burst of growth from these plants, earlier and hardier than their Spring-planted counterparts.

Some plants we'll be working with tonight:

Cleveland Sage
Evening Primrose
Ashwaganda, maybe

and more, depending on what the garden wants to contribute. And of course, anything YOU bring!


Every Third 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!

    I want to come, but having difficulty following through. Overcommitted.
    Can I offer a strong maybe?

    Hi Julie, I know very little/nothing about herbs but am keen to delve into the subject. Will these classes work for me?

    Ah, now I remember why I dropped before. The topics covered were areas I had already explored quite extensively. Maybe this time will be different. I was lucky to live many years in Berkeley and hang out in the Lhasa Kharnak herb store. Also come from a family of traditional healers.

      No, it's not likely to be all that different, as I'm quite happy with the curriculum I offer and the gatherings we have. But welcome, anyway.
