Medicinal Herb Gardening & Salve-Making

  • Sweetgrass Herbals 2908 Ripton Rd Lincoln, VT (map)

Join Emily French of Sweetgrass Herbals for this hands-on workshop. We'll begin in the medicine gardens, talking about propagation, care, harvest, and post-harvest handling of a variety of medicinal plants that grow well in our Vermont climate. Annuals and perennials will be discussed, as will the identification and harvesting of wild medicinals that tend to grow around our gardens. Following the garden component, we'll head to the teaching barn for a hands-on herbal salve making demo, where you will learn how to make your own medicinal salves at home for various applications.
