NORTH WIND HERBS
Come into nature with me to study our medicinal plants!
You will explore beautiful places while learning about plant identification and medicinal/health uses. Students will make tinctures, salves and oils and learn about fermentation.
The act of making medicines from wild plants is not only an ancient tradition, but it can also be an important part of a healthy life. It is the chance to connect with nature in new ways, learn about the benefits of herbal medicines, and take charge of your own health.
We will practice responsible and sustainable wild harvesting at all times. Students will have the opportunity to camp overnight for certain excursions in the Trout Lake area as well. We will harvest flowers, seeds, roots, berries, 2 seasons of mushrooms and more!
The course runs for ten months and meets one Saturday per month. The dates may be subject to weather and harvesting conditions so make-up classes can be arranged. For students who are interested in meeting on a weekday that can be arranged as well.
Cost is $550 for 10 months
Program begins February 2018 and ends November 2018
