Herbal Crash-Course

Join us for a fun-filled day in the herb gardens!  Our day will start with a checkin and an herb walk through our gardens and forested lands to see what is available for medicine.  We will learn about different plants, both cultivated and growing in the wild, what is edible, and which plants should be avoided.  The afternoon will be focused on medicine-making, how to dry different types of herbs, etc.  We will prepare together herbal remedies from our harvests AND of course you will take some home with you!  If there is time, we will go out and harvest together in the wetlands.  The cost is $95 ~ Click here for tickets, and HERE for more information.
