For any level of herbal enthusiast

Come to learn simple and traditional home remedies that can support our sense of health and well-being throughout the Winter season.

All cultures, at one time, had methods of preparing the body, mind, and heart to adapt to the changing of the seasons. Many myths, rituals, and celebrations were designed around regional weather and daylight transition periods as a means to mark time and initiate necessary seasonal activities such as planting, harvesting, and resting.

The environmental shifts that each season brings require that we readjust on our emotional, psychological, as well as physiological levels. Winter, especially in Northern climates, is probably the most challenging season of all.

Which is why plants, as food and medicine, are such important allies during this time of the year.

This workshop is for anyone interested in learning how plant medicine and cookery can support resilience, joy, and restfulness throughout the Winter season.

Herbal remedies will be explained for:

  • Flu prevention and treatment

  • Coughs and colds

  • Fever

  • Sore throats

  • Staying warm

  • We will make a Warming Winter Tea together and everyone will get to take some home.

We will discuss:

  • Nutrition

  • Mythology

  • Celtic folklore

  • Winter foods and recipes

  • Medicinal herbs and spices that can be added to cooking

And there will be a Ginger Foot Bath demonstration.

The event is held in our one-room classroom space. It is wood-heated and equipped with a sink, stove, and refrigerator. The restroom is an outdoor composting toilet (aka outhouse). 

Please plan to bring your own lunch and snacks!
