UPCOMING COMMUNITY WORKSHOPS....
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 IS FULL!
