Community Herbalist Workshop - June 25th, 7-9pm

$29

What makes a Community Herbalist? A Community Herbalist is someone who takes care of their community by creating herbal medicine with local plants while supporting traditional healing practices with modern research.

In this class, we will be the community herbalists we wish to be.We will get a chance to talk about 10 herbs to support common ailments, stress, the cold & flu, and digestive support. We will taste these herbs in teas and tinctures, journal about them, and discuss what is most important to the community and the individual.

This class is an introduction of what the Community Herbalist Certification will dive into.

Any participant in this class can use the cost of the class for a credit for the 2020 Community Herbalist Certification.
