Spring Herbal Preparations with Talia Hammond
Teacher: Talia Hammond
It’s the season for new growth and a fresh start, and time to support the body’s transition from winter hibernation to the active season of spring! This workshop will explore the internal and external elements of this season change, addressing common ailments, such as allergies. Working from Talia’s herb farm, the group will create preparations of herbs, such as cottonwood, nettles, hawthorne, horsetail, clover, and dandelion to aid the body and mind in the process of waking up and drying out. Students will be introduced to both wild foraged spring plants, as well as herbs that grow commonly in our NW gardens. Sustainable harvest and safe preparation will be covered, while students create elixirs, washes, salves, teas, and other plant-based preparations to take home.
This workshop takes place in Husum, WA, on Jean Marie's Farm: rain or shine, please be prepared to be outside all day in potentially inclement weather. Open to students 16 & up. Please leave dogs at home.
