On Saturday April 28th, Lindsay Napolitano will be joining an inspired group of local herbalists as part of this ongoing series being hosted at Flemington DIY.
SATURDAY - April 28th
Wild food and medicine from unkempt lawns and untamed edges
Learn to derive nutrient dense food and gentle plant medicine from common weeds. Join herbalist Lindsay Napolitano to explore foraging basics and alchemical recipes to transform the abundant harvest into delicious herbal creations. Every weed has a gift to offer, a folklore to unfold, and medicine story for transforming our internal and external ecologies. Shift your perspective and enliven your wild nature!
FULL SERIES DESCRIPTION:
We believe deeply that healthcare and healing should be accessible for all people. There are many barriers to healthcare and we hope this People’s Medicine Workshop (organized by Jersey Community Acupuncture) will inspire folks to start using some simple, available plants in their everyday and to forge a path of access to what the earth offers right in our backyards and neighborhoods.
With the help of Amanda Midkiff of Locust Light Farm, Laura Hamill of Perennial Collective, Lindsay Napolitano of Fields Without Fences and Nicole Maniez of Jersey Community Acupuncture, we will explore:
- Herbal Healing in the Kitchen: Culinary Herbs as Medicine
- Simple + Safe Nutritive Herbs to Keep You Well
- Wild Food + Wild Medicine: Foraging Basics in Your Backyard
- Healing Practices for Deeper Connection
This series will include lecture, story telling, hands on creation of herbal products, meditation and healing practices, observation and discussion.
Join us over three Saturdays in April: 4/14, 4/21 and 4/28 from 2-4:30pm at Flemington DIY located at 90 Main Street in Flemington NJ. The course is offered on a sliding scale of $30-60 per person for all three Saturdays. When you register, you will be confirmed for all 3 dates.
