Join this short 3 part herbal mini-series to learn about 3 wild foraged plants used for women's health, that we can find in abundance all around us. In this women's health series we will cover one healing plant per session: motherwort (Leaonurus cardiaca), raspberry leaf (Rhubus ideaus) and rose (Rosa spp.), which are all common wild plants in our city that are not easily over-harvested.
In this hands-on series we will invite you to build a relationship with these plants, by introducing their plant profiles, learning about their historical use and folklore, observing how they grow, harvesting them, and creating healing products together with these plants (with samples to take home). Each participant will also work on a personalized botanical sketch book/journal, where you can keep notes about the history and uses of these plants.
Motherwort - we will an herbal-infused medicinal vinegar
Raspberry leaf - we will make raspberry leaf medicinal tea blend & rasp leaf lemonade
Rose - we will make a rose facial toner/after sun spray & learn about making hydrosols
