Introduction to Herbal Medicine

This two day workshop touches on some of the history and politics of Herbal Medicine and explores the paradigms and practices of holistic approaches to health and to using plants.

We’ll look at a range of kitchen and wild growing herbs for common ailments, learn about all the various preparation methods, do one or more in-depth herb studies and a herb walk to identify some medicinal plants growing in the garden and neighbourhood. 

All welcome, whether you are completely new to Herbal Medicine or want to deepen your connection and/or share of your own knowledge/experiences.
