From the organizers:

Herbalist, Cameron Strauss, will be leading this online Medicine Making Course, where you’ll learn to relate to plants through tastes, smell, and touch to become proficient in and comfortable with using herbs.

If you have never tasted the difference between a cold infusion and a hot infusion of the same herb how will you really understand what constituents taste like and how they extract best? That is why you will be doing everything as a class in your kitchens together.

There will also be virtual plant walks, including worksheets, so you can continue to learn what is around you and in your yard.

The 10 Week Medicine Making Course goals are to:

  • Teach you how to properly identify local medicinals

  • Help you to understand the tastes of herbal medicines and how that relates to their actions

  • Give you a framework and language with which to better understand herbal medicines

  • Impart an intimate knowledge of 11 plants that can be broadly utilized once you understand their actions and uses 

  • Help you take the guesswork out of how best to extract medicinals

  • Teach you how to make everything from tinctures to salves with hands-on lessons

By the end of the course you will have a personal first aid kit containing salves, tinctures, glycerine, essential oils, hydrosols, and 11 herbs for you to get to know and in each class you will learn about one herb in an in-depth way as to expand your-plant prowess.

In each class we will be tasting and making native local preparations and deepening our connection to the world around us through herbal knowledge that flows through the seasons! By the end of this intensive, my goal is to have you wild harvesting and medicine making in your own home like a professional kitchen herbalist!
