PLANT ID WALK:
This hands-on class starts out with a gentle stroll introducing you to native plants in our Appalachian region. We will discuss the medicinal value of the plants along with the parts used in medicine making, ethical harvesting, and identification tips. Please bring a journal for notes, comfortable walking shoes, water, and rain gear.
CREATE MAKE-AND-TAKE SALVE:
Start your own herbal medicine cabinet with this hands-on aspect of our workshop. Abby will teach you about the ingredients and methods for making herbal oils and salves and their various uses. There’s a lot more than you might think, from culinary or therapeutic, to cosmetic. These could make a great homemade gift, too. You will go home with a salve you helped create and empowered with the knowledge to make your own salves with an understanding of local plants and their medicinal uses along with a detailed handout with instructions and recipes. Please bring a container to place your salve in.
