The local medicine movement is growing right along with the local food movement, and rightly so! Home medicine-making is empowering, ecological, effective, and builds community resilience. Come learn how to harvest and dry your own herbs, and make preparations such as tinctures, teas, herbal honeys, and more. See how simple and easy making your own herbal medicine can be!
Winter Tree Medicine
Saturday January 30th, 10am-12pm
Tower Hill Botanic Garden (in collaboration with the Herbal Community of Central Massachusetts)
Just because it's winter doesn't mean you can't still make medicine! In this workshop we will meet some of our local evergreens and learn how to identify them. We'll also discuss their medicinal benefits and learn how to capture these properties in easy and effective preparations such as salves, oils, and elixers. We'll demonstrate how to make the medicine and recipes will be shared! Pre-register at http://www.hcocm.org/
