Kitchen Medicine - the garden farmacy
** Should this page be showing no dates available, please go to this link
Throughout history, mothers and grandmothers of every culture and tradition have been the source of healing in the family. In the kitchen, the heart of the home, remedies were made from locally grown and easily accessible herbs for everyday ailments. These days it isn’t necessarily the mother, or even a women, but the foundations of kitchen medicine remain the same, it’s the art of making medicine for everyday ailments out of common ingredients sourced from your garden and pantry.
During this hands-on workshop, Lisa will introduce you to herbal medicine making. You will take a walk through the CERES garden beds and bring the wisdom of traditional herbal medicine into a modern context. You will explore the traditional and modern uses of the plants and how to introduce these plants into the kitchen as medicine. You will make an item to take home as well as a seedling.
