Everyday Herbalism Workshop
“Let food be thy medicine.” ~ Hippocrates
If you love to eat, you will love this workshop.
Join us on the farm for a day of exploring how to intentionally infuse herbalism into the everyday.
Steeping, seasoning, and infusing are just a few of the ways in which we can enjoy herbs in our daily lives, providing a simple and flavorful addition to food and beverage choices we make regularly. In these same ways, we can also benefit from their therapeutic qualities, and can therefore eat and drink our way through herbs as a means of bringing health and healing properties into our everyday routines. By creatively incorporating herbs into our traditional, staple recipes we can nurture our body and absorb medicine in every meal.
During the course of our time together, we will tour the gardens, collecting herbs and vegetables, meanwhile discussing the characteristics and constituents of the plants growing there. Afterward, we will spend time in the kitchen, blending herbal teas and preparing simple vegetarian dishes using ingredients from our harvest. We will conclude the afternoon by sharing a seasonal meal that we create together in the true spirit of community and eating local.
In addition to this delicious, communal meal, participants will receive some of our favorite recipes and herbal blends as mementos of our day on the farm spent together.
This event is rain or shine.
