If you’ve been interested in learning more about herbalism but haven’t been sure where to start, this is the workshop for you. Herbalism has been around as long as people have walked the earth. Using herbs to promote health is as necessary to human life as diet and exercise. In today’s market and healthcare atmosphere, what was once a basic understanding, has become confusing and overwhelming.
We will spend the afternoon giving a basic overview of herbalism as it is practiced today in America and how it can complement YOUR health. Herbs are the people’s medicine - and they are growing right outside your front door!
