This six-class series will give you a strong foundation in herbalism: making herbal medicines, kitchen herbalism, skin care, first aid, gardening and harvesting, and more. Each class includes comprehensive information on, and sampling of, each of the two herbs discussed and in-depth discussion on foundational aspects of herbal healing. We will discuss how to grow the plants we are using, propagation techniques, harvest, and preparation. You will create an extensive herbal apothecary throughout the class series and will become comfortable with the basics of herbalism.
