Workshop Description

How many times have you found yourself with the bounty of your herbal garden and realized that you really don’t know what to do with all of it? This class will cover a step-by-step process for determining optimum times for harvesting herbs, by creating a customized harvesting schedule. Be it the root, the bark, flowers or seed pods, you will learn the best times to harvest your plants. We will also learn what to do with each herb to preserve its health benefits. Examples of drying herbs, preparing tinctures or extracts, making salves or medicinal balms, as well as some unusual ways of storing your bounty will be discussed. This class will help to take away the fear of not using the abundance that you have grown.
