Bring your notebooks, your hunger to learn and to share your own knowledge and experience of using medicinal herbs in health and in illness. Floyd’s Wild Edible and Organic Gardening Club has organized a series of skill-share workshops over the winter months in conjunction with the Montgomery-Floyd Library. We will be focusing on medicinal herbs and have invited some local experts to share their knowledge and experience with us.
Each talk will be held from 2:00 – 4:00 and will be followed by a pot-luck meal. Please bring your own plates, cups, utensils & good food to share. All talks are free and open to the public.
Katherine Chantal, an herbalist for over 40 years and advisor at The Harvest Moon store,. Will present from “The Wise Woman” tradition which views plants and weeds as a source of food and medicine and encourages us each to take responsibility for our healing. Katherine will share the benefits of native plants, as well as, some that are becoming acclimated to our climate, that help support the immune system. We will sip herbal teas and learn about preparations to keep ourselves healthy through the winter season
