Spring will soon be here and with it comes the lovely green of fresh growth! If you are wondering what plants are or will be growing around you this spring than this workshop is for you!
Come join Tatum in this workshop as she discusses the spring plants growing locally that can be used as food and medicine. You will learn how to identify these edible medicinal spring plants, ethical wild crafting, and proper harvesting/preparation techniques.
You will be introduced to the following plants: violets, chickweed, stinging nettle, cleavers, dandelion, coltsfoot, red clover, pine, spruce and more!
We will use a herb infused oil (Balm of Gilead) to create a salve for each participant to take home with them! Balm of Gilead oil is made from the resinous Balsam Poplar buds which have an amazing anti-inflammatory, analgesic, and anti-rheumatic properties. It relieves the pain associated with sore muscles, bruising, general aches and pains, and arthritis. You can also apply this balm to bites, stings, rashes, burns, cuts, scrapes, dry scaly skin, abrasions, chapped skin, diaper rash, as well as eczema, psoriasis, and minor wounds.
Tea & a tasty treat will be provided by Station 33!
