Medicine Maker Herbal Apprentice: Medicinal Oils, Salves, and Early Fall Plants

September 9, 2023 @ 9:00 AM - September 10, 2023 @ 1:00 PM

Connect with the plants and each other to learn about herbalism at Old Ways Herbal School of Plant Medicine in Newfane!

The medicine we make as a class is guided by the seasons, and the herbs we choose change as the season unfolds, allowing students an in-depth understanding of the medicinal uses of a number of local plants. Plant walks, group harvesting, & hands-on practice form a core of this course. By the end of the season, students have created a personal, handmade apothecary, and learned from the creations of their peers.

One Saturday a month from June-September, plus a recommended (but optional) monthly Sunday.
