A little later than I’d hoped – here are the class dates and topics.
May 17th – Medicine Making 101 – oils, salves, tinctures and more.
June 21st – Building your Home Apothecary/Basic First Aid
July 19th – Actions and Energetics
August 23rd – Herbs by System – Part One: Skin, Cardiovascular and Respiratory
September 20 – Herbs by System – Part Two: Nervous system and Digestion
October18 – Herbs by System – Part Three: Reproductive and Urinary tract
This is as far as I have booked, and remember there will be plant walks in between. The likeliest dates for those, are as follows:
These walks will visit the same plants in different stages of growth, as well as go to various areas to see a range of wild herbs and hone our ID skills. I’ll post a list of what you will need here as well as on the FB group, so everyone can be well prepared. You will need some materials for the medicine making class, and I’ll be sure to post that as well before the date. For the most part, we will meet at the Rupert Community Centre as for the classes.
I’m looking at doing a fullday workshop towards the end of the year where we review all our studies this year, make medicines with the plants we’ve harvested(roots, in particular) and review our herbal apothecary for the coming winter. More on that TBA.
Please mark these on your calendar, let me know if you have special concerns and please feel free to add suggestions. Here comes the summer! I look forward to seeing the regular faces and some new ones as well. 🙂
