Join Rosemary for this wonderful introduction into the world of herbalism. This class will emphasize the foundations of herbalism and herbs for family health. There will be lots of hands on learning and activities, including making herbal products, learning to identify, harvest and prepare plants, creating a first aide kit, and learning how to use plants for health and healing…..all taught in Rosemary’s joyful inspiring way with plants.

A sampling of topics we’ll cover:

Using Herbs and Herbal Remedies for Home Health ~ how to put into practice your budding herbal knowledge. We will cover safety issues, dosaging, creating an herbal apothecary for the home, and other essential details that will help you develop your herbal skills.
