Medicinal Soups & Nourishing Broths
Sat October 20
At Flower Power Herbs & Roots

Fall and winter are great times to start cooking-up nourishing and medicinal foods, and broths and soups lend themselves incredibly well to herbal additions! We'll learn about the best herbs to include in our cooking, how to combine them for different flavor profiles, and learn about the medicinal benefits of these herbs as we go. This workshop is hands-on and we'll make a medicinal broth together in class. Handouts and recipes will be provided! Learn More and Register for Class Here

Winter Tree Medicine
Friday December 7th
At the Bower Studio & Apothecary
The winter months are a great time to work with the conifers, since they can be harvested for medicine year-round! 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 elixirs. We'll demonstrate how to make the medicine and recipes will be shared! Class size is limited. Register for class HERE!
