You don’t need a green thumb to invite healing herbs into your garden, and you don’t need a degree in herbal medicine to work with them! With a little common sense and some know-how, you can enjoy a cup of the freshest herb tea year round that is not only delicious, but offers an abundance of health benefits. In this workshop, we will be focusing on 10 of the instructor’s favorite herbs to grow for teas, as well as proper harvesting techniques and how to preserve your harvest so that it remains vibrant and life-giving for months. We’ll explore a variety of water preparations you can make with dried herbs, such as washes, nourishing infusions, broths, steams and of course, the perfect cup of tea. We’ll also talk a little about blending herbs to create your own unique recipes and formulas. This class is perfect for absolute beginners, as well as those who may have already begun their herbal journey. Bring your questions, and your seed catalog! Each attendee will receive a pdf handout with plant profiles, recipes, instructions, techniques, and blank forms for your use. This class is being held virtually via Zoom and will be recorded and available for all registrants to download. Students must have an audio- and video-enabled laptop, desktop, or tablet with reliable internet to participate in class. We do not recommend using a smartphone.
