Deep Nutrition & Health from Your Garden Herbs: Making Herbal Infusions with Amy Antonucci
Do you want to get the most nutrition and health from some of those tough, mineral-rich, perennial herbs you are growing? Here is the best and easiest way that I have found to do that...
Make Herbal Infusions from your Garden Herbs! Featuring stinging nettle (urtica dioica), comfrey (symphytum uplandica), red clover (trifolium pratense) and oatstraw (avena sativa). Nourishing herbal infusions, pioneered by herbalists Juliette de Bairacli Levy and Susun Weed, are very long-brewed teas using dried herbs high in vitamins and minerals. This Wise Woman Way tradition gives our bodies the building blocks they need to keep us healthy and well, and is a technique that helps us get the most nutrition we can from these plants. These are herbs that we can grow ourselves or easily obtain.
Along with information and discussion, our time together will be hands on - we will make infusions, taste some already brewed, smell the herbs, etc.
This class especially helps us to practice Permaculture Principle #3 to Obtain a Yield (herbs we can grow or find ourselves if we wish), Permaculture Principle #8 to Integrate Rather Than Segregate (using plants rather than vitamin pills), and Permaculture Principle #9 to Use Small and Slow Solutions (again, plants vs pills).
Amy has been studying herbs and the health they can bring us for 15 years with numerous herbalists including Susun Weed, Rosemary Gladstar and Deb Soule. The plants themselves are often her best teachers.
We are charging for this on a sliding scale of $10-20. You can pay at the class - there are some materials costs so PLEASE take your rsvp seriously! THANKS!
