Workshops & classes
We offer many free classes and workshops here at the nursery. It's such an honor to work together with many local growers, educators, and community members and we wouldn't be able to hold these great events without them. Here’s what’s coming up and a few of the classes we've had in the past.
Growing Herbs for Food and Medicine
A 4-part series with Cici Cyr
Four Wednesdays starting October 24th 2018
Join Cici for this 4 part workshop series, where you'll discover the methods and process of creating plant medicines covering all the steps involved in growing and making plant medicine:
During each of the four weeks, we will focus on one or two locally available herbs and one herbal medicine preparation in depth. In addition to the weekly plants of focus, I'll bring many other herbs for exploration. After each class, you will take home a bottle of your own custom plant medicine. The classes can be taken independently but are best taken as a complete series:
Class 1 - Wednesday October 24th 2018 (Full Moon)
Preparing Tinctures with Mugwort and White Sage
