About the Event
Back by request: growing medicinal herbs, a virtual workshop!
Join us in learning how to grow medicinal herbs from seed to harvest! In this workshop we’ll introduce the basics of growing a selection of herbs, alongside deep dives into their medicinal virtues. We’ll discuss seed starting and propagation methods, incorporating herbs into a variety of spaces, companion planting, and other tips from our growing experience. Whether you have a yard or garden or are growing in pots, we want to help you plan a vibrant medicinal garden.
We’ll also cover harvesting and drying methods for each herb and touch on a few simple ways to prepare and preserve your harvests. In April (date TBD), a follow-up workshop on making herbal tinctures, salves, and more will get into the nitty gritty of medicine making and building your home apothecary.
We love growing medicines for you, but we also know that bringing plants into your spaces offers ways to deepen relationships with plants/plant medicines, support local ecology, and (of course) add vibrancy and beauty to your gardens.
This workshop will be over Zoom on Saturday March 12th, from 10-11:30a.m. As usual, we offer sliding scale fees at $10, $20, and $30. You can read more about sliding scale and choosing your rate on our website. Attendees will receive a copy of the slides, workshop recording, and additional gardening resources following the event.
