Crafting an Herbal Home Apothecary at the NOFA NJ Winter Conference

Presenter:  Lindsay Napolitano

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 workshop we’ll explore the powerful medicinal activity of common wild species and garden favorites. We’ll explore simple herbal preparations to craft at home, new healing plants to introduce into your garden and landscape, and all-natural, herbal products to swap in for your old medicine cabinet standbys. Join herbalist, Lindsay Napolitano for an inspiring introduction to plant medicine making. The path to healing runs through the garden!
