In the backdrop of the country’s largest outdoor collection of medicinal plants, this course explores how to observe, cultivate, harvest, process, consume, honor and relate to medicinal herbs, especially those relevant to keeping the immune and nervous systems strong in the age of COVID-19. In addition to herbal education, Gill Tract herbalists will share practical instruction on self consultation, garden design, and medicine making techniques, including essences, teas, vinegars, tinctures, oils, salves and syrups. Honoring ancestral traditions of folk herbalism, students will be encouraged to share their own experiences and herbal knowledge, along with the facilitators.
