A Deep Dive into the Dandelion Plant-A Tincture Making Class
March 23 : 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm
Imagine the vitality of the humble dandelion, the weed so many love to hate, love to spray with pesticides, pull-out, only to have them come back a few weeks later. You have that same vitality too, and by consuming this wellness tonic of high repute you can increase that vitality. A plant with many uses from food, to tonic wine, to potent wellness and anti-cancer remedies.
Ed and Maya Skopal of I-TAL Acres will be leading a workshop which will involve identifying, learning about, and harvesting medicinal plants with a deep dive on the history and folk uses of the dandelion. Workshop participants will make their own tincture from all parts of the dandelion plant ( root, flowers, and greens) and come away with the knowledge of how to make their own tinctures, salves, and infused oils.
