Start your own Herbal Revolution and join me for a five month exploration of herbalism
This class is for people that want to gain a foundation in herbal medicine and go deeper into learning some of the plants that grow here in Maine.
The first step to become an herbalist is being called by the plants, the next step is understanding the plants and how best to work with them. This series will introduce you plant constituents, herbal actions, energetics and plant habitat all of which are important things to understand. Want to know why their important? Great! you can sign up and join myself and other community members on this journey of creating an herbal foundation.
We will focus on 2 - 4 herbs each class, most of there herbs we'll focus on grow wild in Maine or can be grown here. We'll discuss habitat, historical uses, folk lore, current uses, how to grow and harvest the plants and of course how to make them into medicine and use them.
Some of the medicine making practices you'll learn include tea, infused oils, salves, tinctures, syrups, flower essences and more. We will be making food with some of these plants as well!
This class will offer you hands on experience working with the plants. You will receive samples of all the plants we discuss so in between classes you have the opportunity to take your studies deeper with lessons and self exploration. You will receive handouts with each class and projects to work on in between classes.
