The End of Antibiotics: How herbs can help

Workshop Level: Beginner
K.C. grew up in rural Oklahoma and doesn’t remember a year of her childhood that didn’t involve food — fresh, frozen or canned — from the family’s enormous garden. The definition of security begins there and the path to health, peace and wellbeing leads right into the kitchen. Her definition of world peace is a place where we all can cook for each other and make music together.

Workshop Description

As antibiotic-resistant bacteria become increasingly numerous and virulent, thanks to the overuse of antibiotics, herbal medicine offers a useful alternative. Inspired by herbalist and author Stephen H. Buhner's remarkable book Herbal Antibiotics: Natural Alternatives for Treating Drug-Resistant Bacteria, this workshop might scare you silly before it gives you hope, practical advice and a profound appreciation for the partnership of plants.
