Date: October 3, 2021

Time: 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm

Location: 3630 Poffenberger Rd.

New to herbs? Join us for a beginner-level class for learners wanting to take it slow, and get to know specific herbs one at a time. We’ll cover 10 key herbs you’ll get to know through taste, touch, and smell. Through a monthly, 2-hour exploration we’ll practice building a core understanding of herbalism. You’ll learn basic skills like how to harvest, clean, and prepare herbs so that you leave with a ready-made herbal preparation to take home. In class, we’ll experiment with different applications including tea infusions, salves, and infused oils, herbal dips, tinctures, pastilles, and more.

When: 12-2 pm first Sunday, May – October
