People, it’s finally happening.  My herbal workshops are starting this July!

I’ve been working and preparing to make them as good as they can be!  So join me, won’t you, in the journey to good health!  Learn what you can do for your family to keep everyone healthy and feeling good.  You will learn, you will eat and drink, you will make things, you will have fun!

Classes are as follows:

The Herbalist’s Kitchen

In this workshop, learn what common ailments can be treated using common kitchen spices, wild plants you can find in your yard, and vegetables from your CSA box or farmer’s market!  Learn what it is to have food be your medicine, and learn about both treatments and prevention.  We’ll then cook a meal together using Radical Root farm-fresh ingredients, putting together what we learned!
