Wellness Workshops

Our fall offerings take a deep dive into immunity, respiratory and general wellness support.

These workshops are for anyone interested in holistic healing, supporting health naturally, and/or the way of herbs...from kitchen spices and vegetables to medicines we grow in our gardens and harvest from wild spaces.

 

We strive to deliver content is a way that is helpful for everyday living, is informative without being too clinical or overwhelming and supports people of all ages.

We'll sample and make an herbal remedy in each workshop...-mushroom concoctions, elderberry syrup & fire cider to name a few.

Kitchen Witchery
+ Fire Cider

Saturday
November 4th
1-3 pm

$55 / Person
Includes all materials and supplies

Common kitchen spices and herbs offer so much more than good flavor.  They are antimicrobial powerhouses, provide targeted immune support and can even provide relief of annoying cold symptoms.

Fire Cider is a seasonal winter remedy we always have on hand in our household...and it can be made from common grocery store ingredients! 

 

It can be enjoyed as a daily immune tonic and/or as an immune booster at the onset of cold symptoms.  I personally enjoy a shot of Fire Cider added to a cup of warm tea each day.  It's my favorite way to remedy bone-chilling cold that is common in the darkest days of winter.

Moving beyond the dinner plate, we'll prepare these foods in new and interesting ways, including a Fire Cider remedy to take home.  Fire Cider is fairly easy to make...and recipes are varied.

Longevity Teas &
Herbal Infusions

Saturday
November 18th 
1-3 pm

Tea is one of the easiest ways to both enjoy and support our health with herbs. Some herbs support best with daily consumption while others are best used for a short period of time.

We'll get to know several herbs, their qualities as perceived through the senses, and how to go about choosing the best herbs based upon how we're feeling and what symptoms we're experiencing...

 for immunity,
to alleviate sinus pressure,
to soothe a sore throat,
to lift chest congestion,
to reduce headache intensity,
to soothe digestion
to ease nervous tension
and more.
