Come spend the day getting your hands dirty learning the nitty-gritty aspects of herbalism.
During this 3-day/3 season class we will travel to different locations identifying and harvesting seasonal plant material. We will discuss the best methods of preparation for the herbs harvested, their healing properties and dosage. We will process some of what we’ve collected making tinctures, infused oils and/or glycerides to take home for decanting and use.
◯ The first class will meet early spring and will focuses on harvesting roots and early spring herbs.
◑ The second class will gather mid-summer and focus on herbs in bloom, aerial tops, and drying techniques.
◐ The third class will meet in the fall and focus on late blooming herbs, more roots, possibly mushrooms, and seed collection.
All class dates are subject to change due to late bloomage and/or lack of herbage.
All students will be asked to bring a shovel, digging tools, clippers, any field guides they may have, as well as bags for collection.
Be prepared to get dirty and possibly wet. Classes will be held regardless of light rain.
Jars and all menstrums for preparation during class will be provided. Our goal for each class is for every participant to take home at least two preparations made that day.
Dates to be announced.
