Plant Medicine Garden 

An introduction to growing and making your own medicine.

11am-2pm

Supplies, snacks and beverages provided.

Workshop includes:

  • Hand out
  • Plant Walk
    • What is plant medicine and how is it different from mainstream medicine?
    • A respectful approach to working with plants
    • Five medicinal plants you can easily grow in your garden (garlic, peppermint, basil, calendula and echinacea)
    • When/how to harvest these plants and what part of the plant to use (leaf, root, and/or flower)
    • Three common “weeds” that we are often trying to get OUT of our gardens that are actually very powerful medicines (stinging nettle, dandelion and plantain)
  • Instruction, demonstrations and medicine-making
    • How to prepare medicines with each plant (teas, poultices, tinctures, infused oils, and salves)
    • Make your own tincture—valued at $20
    • Make your own infused oil—valued at $15

Please dress for the weather. In case of heavy rain and/or thunderstorms we will have a Plant Talk (instead of a Plant Walk) indoors and I will harvest plants beforehand for medicine-making.
