Herbal Medicine is People’s Medicine

This is a hands-on, skills based course steeped in relationship & connection.

We will spend time in the forest and learn to recognize and identify our beloved plant kin.

We will learn the foundations of formulation, infusions, & extracts.

We will explore basic herbal applications for supporting our friends & family.

We will build community & build our skills together.

Topics Covered:

  • Plant Identification & Foraging
  • Harvesting, Drying, & Preservation
  • Teas, Infusions, & Decoctions
  • Herbal Syrups, Vinegars and Oxymels
  • Oil Infusions & Salves
  • Tinctures & Bitters
  • Medicine Infused Foods
  • Living in Right Relationship

Each month we will meet for two classes:

Part 1: Forest Walk

The first class of the month will take place outdoors in mindful connection with the land. This is an opportunity to connect, explore, practice plant identification, and make seasonal and respectful harvests for our upcoming medicine making classes. Locations will change month to month as we explore different ecosystems and plant kin.

Part 2: Medicine Making

For the second class every month, we will meet indoors at a local gathering place and work with our hands to create home remedies and herbal medicine, each month focusing on a different menstruum and medium. This will include: Teas & Decoctions, Vinegars & Oxymels, Tinctures & Bitters, Syrups & Honeys, and Medicine Foods.
