Weedy Herbal Allies

1-hour talk

As the saying goes, “It’s only a weed if it grows where it isn’t wanted.” Why spray the weeds when we can eat them or use them as medicine? In this talk we’ll cover the most commonly found garden “pests” that most people spend hours attempting to exterminate from their gardens. I will cover historical and current uses, easy recipes in the kitchen, as well as provide samples of remedies, food and/or drinks. Attendees will leave with a new appreciation of the weedy wonders that grow around them.


Gut Health & Herbal Bitters

Choose from a 1-hour talk or a 3-hour hands-on workshop

Explore the much-maligned and often forgotten world of herbal bitters. In our society, the bitter element in food and drink has taken a backseat to the more appreciated flavors like salty and sweet (thank you, processed food industry). In this talk, I will dive into the many benefits of bitters, including igniting digestion, balancing blood sugar, correcting a sluggish metabolism and reducing the toxic load. I will cover ways to incorporate bitters into your life easily, plus share samples and a few fun recipes. For the workshop, students will make their own herbal bitter combination with herbs I supply. Max 10 students.
* please be sure to bring the required supplies to the workshop *
