Harmonizing With the Seasons
Sunday Sept 7th. 12-2:30
Just Roots/ Greenfield Community Farm
Greenfield, MA. By Donation $0-$15

The distinct seasons of New England each exert their own subtle-and not so subtle- influences on both our physical bodies and our psyches.  By attuning with each season on hand, we can ally with these natural influences to advance our personal growth and development, and improve our health.  Using the framework of Chinese Five Element Theory as a guide, we will learn the flavors and foods, colors and sounds, herbs and daily practices associated with each season, and see the amazing unity and balance one can achieve by harmonizing with the earth and her seasonal rhythms.
~Pre-Registration requested at Just Roots~

The Winter Herbal Medicine Cabinet
Sunday Oct 19th. 12-2:30 pm.
Just Roots/ Greenfield Community Farm
Greenfield, MA. By Donation $0-$15

In this afternoon workshop we'll cover some common and not so common herbal remedies to boost our immune systems, support us through the winter months and help keep ourselves and our families and communities healthy.  Class will be a mixture of hand-outs, discussion and most importantly, medicine-making.  Participants will all leave with an herbal preparation made in class, a check-list of important remedies to have on hand for the winter season, and a sense of empowerment that grassroots healthcare is not only incredibly important and highly effective, it's also easy and fun!

The Winter Herbal Medicine Cabinet for Kids

As a parent one of our most rewarding, and sometimes challenging, tasks is keeping our kids healthy.  In this workshop we’ll learn how to safely use herbal medicine to support the body’s own innate healing process, strengthen the immune system, and ease the symptoms of the colds, flus and coughs that most kids invariably get during the long winter months.  Kid-tested recipes will be given and participants will all leave with some medicine we make together in class! ~pre-registration required.
