  • Schiff Nature Preserve 339 Pleasant Valley Road Mendham, NJ, 07945 United States (map)

REGISTER FOR THIS CLASS!

Gentle herbal remedies for common conditions are often found as close as the spice cabinet, the home garden, or even the lawn! Kitchen medicine connects us with herbal traditions that span human history, and helps restore deeper relationships with the plants that surround us. In this hands-on workshop we’ll explore simple herbal preparations to craft at home, healing plants to introduce into your garden and landscape, and all-natural, herbal products to swap in for your old medicine cabinet standbyes. Participants are invited to craft a homemade herbal tea, salve, and tincture to bring home. Join herbalist, Lindsay Napolitano for an inspiring introduction to plant medicine making. The path to healing runs through the garden!
