Herb Club

The Herb Club is a free, family friendly club led by local herbalists. Each month we highlight an herb, share recipes, experiences and knowledge, taste teas and get our senses involved with a hands on activity. Hope to see you there!

This month we will focus on Home Apothecary Basics - Preparing your Fall and Winter Herbal Medicines.

This month Kelly Howard, clinical herbalist, will teach about herbs to boost the immune system and what to have on hand for common fall/winter ailments like colds and flu, coughs, dry skin, etc.

In this class you will learn how to make an infusion, decoction, syrup, gummies and ozymel. We will taste as we go!

There will be demonstrations of making elderberry syrup, elderberry gummies, and fire cider.

Optional Hands-on: Make your own cold and flu tea and/or elderberry syrup packet to take home. (Small fee for supplies)
