From the organizers:
Workshop Fee: $25 Advanced registration and payment required
Join Debbie Boutelier, Community Herbalist and Master Gardener, as we discover ways to make your current herb garden provide not only aesthetic and culinary benefits, but medicinal benefits as well. This will be an introductory class exploring the reasons for incorporating herbs into a more healthful lifestyle, using herbs you may already have to create medicines, and some of the delivery systems used for medicinal purposes.
Influenza has been in the news daily this season with thousands of people missing school and work while battling this illness. We will learn how to make several useful herbal remedies primarily to fight colds and influenza. Also, in this workshop, we will cover in-depth how to make an herbal tea, a decoction, a tincture, an herbal salve and a syrup. The participant will also get a popular herbal remedy to take home as well as handouts explaining several of the procedures. (2 hours)
