About the event

Using plants for medicine is an ancient human art that was, and still is, a necessity to keep one’s family and community healthy. To create an herbal home apothecary is to make an investment in the health and well-being of your self, family, friends, and loved ones.

This hands on and informative class series will cover practical medicine-making skills as well as discussing in depth a number of plants that are available in the midwest, how to harvest and prepare them, and what their medicinal and folkloric uses are. Upon leaving each class, we will have hand-crafted a small batch of seasonal herbal medicine you will bring home, and participants will leave with creative recipes to further explore.

Topics covered:

- What does it mean to truly live with the flow of the seasons?

- How botanical medicine can harmonize our body, mind and spirit with the natural world.

- Medicinal plants available locally during each season and how to work with them to cultivate a sense of well-being.

- How to ethically harvest and grow these herbs for future use.

- The most important remedies to have in a home apothecary.

- Various methods of medicine-making and herbal preservation.

This will be an ongoing series with each class building off of the skills learned in earlier ones. But they are inspiring on their own and can be taken as a single drop-in. Class is on Friday from 5:30 - 8:30pm. The cost is $30. Sliding scale available for BIPOC or single mothers, no one turned away for lack of funds.
