Join Katherine Gekas, herbalist and WFCF member, for 3 two-hour introductory workshop series about herbal remedies. Each of the three workshops you will learn about two to three medicinal herbs found growing on the farm. Katherine will guide participants on how to identify and harvest herbs then how to prepare one or two products of each herb that you will able to take  home at the end of the workshop.

Some herbs that will be covered during the workshop series will likely be the plants most farmers and gardeners consider to be "weeds".  A few herbs will be found in the herb garden at the farm and you will learn how culinary herbs can be used medicinally. Products that you will make may include: tinctures, oils, salves, creams, teas and liniments.
