November Medicine-Making Workshop!

Hands-on medicine-making workshop at the Sanctuary. We will start out with a bit of field work, learning how to identify 3 different healing, nourishing plants: burdock, yellow dock, and dandelion. From there we will carefully dig our roots up and out from their earthen homes, shake the dirt off, and take them inside to the warmth of our homestead.
After a bit of warm ginger tea and discussion of the healing potentials and uses of each plant, we will process our roots into several different methods. We will make burdock and dandelion tinctures, dandelion vinegar, yellow dock syrup, and cut some for dried infusions.Cost of class: $40/person, includes a hand out summarizing plant profiles and a fresh-made herbal goodie of your choice!
Space is limited, RSVP required.

FALL Medicinal/Edible ID Hike

Fall and winter are some of the trickiest times to identify plants. Many perennials have tucked themselves away into the Earth already; preparing for the cold, and many annuals have faded away as well. However, it is essential to know a plant in all its many forms; to connect with the importance of wildcrafting and processing a plant in it’s prime state (for energetic and survival purposes); and to know the wild cycle of plant life that surrounds you in each season. To name a few, Catnip, Motherwort, and Pokeweed have re-emerged to give us one last green greeting for the year. We will identify an abundance (yes, even this time of year!) of healing plants and briefly discuss their medicinal+edible uses. Children always welcome. This hike will be casual and non-strenuous.

Cost: $7/person or love offering/no charge for kiddos.
