In this two hour skillshare participants will learn about several medicinal plants growing in New York State and how we can build mutually regenerative relationships for our survival and wellbeing. Our body, mind and spirit can often be weighed down by all of the stimulation we are exposed to in this day and age. This workshop is intended for folks interested in continuing their journey with herbs and curious to learn how to make their own medicine. Participants will leave with their own herbal tea blend and knowledge of how to make water based plant extracts such as infusions and decoctions, as well as other menstrums that can be used for medicine making.
