Each season we offer workshops for those interested in building their own home apothecary. This year we have teamed up with Edgegrove Farm in Purcellville Virginia.
During each of our Saturday workshops we will guide you through the basics of identification, uses and most common preparations of the herbs we will study. No experience is necessary to attend these classes. The format is pretty relaxed and will always incorporate an outdoor component (weather permitting) followed by herbal medicine making indoors or under shelter. Read more.
Location: Edgegrove Farm, 35660 Potts Lane, Purcellville, VA 20132
Dates: May 19, July 7, and October 6
Time: 2 p.m. – 5 p.m.
Content: Herbalism 101
Each session, you will learn 3+ seasonal herbs, understand how to identify them and use them in your own home apothecary. You will leave each session with a product that you’ve made, using the herb you’ve learned about. All medicine making materials will be made available so there is no need to purchase any special equipment.
Herbs will be either wildcrafted from the farm or provided to you in the dry form.
To register for one of the workshops, please register through our online shop. The prices vary for each workshop due to the difference in techniques covered and materials required.
If you would like to sign up for all three seasons, you will receive a discount.
