Plant Medicine: Salves, Teas & Tinctures - June 5

You may not know it, but most of the medicines available to us at local pharmacies are derived from plants! Native people have been using plants for their medicinal qualities for thousands of years. Much of this ancient knowledge is still around and we would like to share a bit of it with you. This class will focus on how to prepare medicinal plants to get the most benefit. Come learn hands-on how to make a few simple herbal preparations. You will make tinctures, brew effective teas, and create medicinal salves! Every student will bring home at least an ounce of tincture and some salve to try out at home. Then enjoy the freedom and self-sufficiency of knowing how to make your own medicines!

I have attended courses at ENWS for 4 years.  To call the classes "impactful" is a severe understatement.  They have been perspective altering.  To quote Thomas Henry Huxley:
"To a person uninstructed in natural history, his country or sea-side stroll is a walk through a gallery filled with wonderful works of art, nine-tenths of which have their faces turned to the wall. Teach him something of natural history, and you place in his hands a catalogue of those which are worth turning around."
Earth Native's classes are mostly outdoors, always interesting, and a great way to change your perspective.  As for me, it has granted me a catalogue (to reference the quote) that now permeates the way I perceive the natural world.  Instead of a city-boy with zero confidence in the wilderness, I now feel competent to the level of comfort in being part of nature.
I owe a lot to ENWS and will never be able to repay the debt. - JB
