What we're about

This is a group for anyone interested in medicinal herbs; their identification; their many and varied uses, and the numerous ways that they can be prepared and used safely and effectively. Anyone interested in an holistic approach to health & wellness is very welcome, regardless of skill level. Join us & come and learn. I'll be offering a varied program of movies, walks, talks, workshops, and hands-on opportunities to create herbal remedies. What a great opportunity to build an intentional herbal community, get to know local plants and how they can support health.

Classes and workshops are taught by by Leslie Alexander, PhD RH(AHG), a community/clinical herbalist with a growing practice in Erie, PA. Leslie's a Registered Herbalist with the American Herbalists Guild.

Let's Talk Herbs

Erie Whole Foods Co-Op Cafe

MARK YOUR CALENDARS FOR THE LAST THURSDAY OF EACH MONTH!! "Let's Talk Herbs" is a free monthly gathering, with folks meeting in both Erie and Franklin, PA. ​Meeting on the last Thursday of each month, at each venue, we share lunches, samples, questions, ideas, and herbal products. Sometimes we just sit and talk herbs, or swap seeds. Both gatherings are informal. Both gatherings encourage people with little or no herbal experience and those who've worked with herbs more than others. In essence, everyone's welcome. In Erie, we meet at the Erie Whole Foods Co-op Cafe, 1341 W 26th St, Erie, noon 'til 1PM on the last Thursday of the month. The Franklin group continues to thrive, thanks to everyone's participation and they meet also at noon at the Franklin Public Library, on 12th Street, often upstairs (there's elevator access). Think about dropping in, wherever you are! The photo above: Tussilago farfara (coltsfoot), in early spring ... just about the time we might need an antitussive.
