Our time together will include some permaculture 101 basics, a tour of the farm, the aforementioned highlights, and an extended Q and A period.

Medicinal Plants in Science and Tradition

Traditional herbalism and orthodox Western medicine are often perceived as mutually exclusive approaches to health and wellness---but are they? How can scientific research enhance understanding of herbs and application of plant-based therapies? How can traditional herbal approaches inform orthodox Western medicine as it evolves to a more holistic system of care? Join us at RambleRill Farm as we explore answers to these questions and others through presentations and discussion.

Growing Medicinal Plants in Your Backyard

For centuries, people have healed themselves with plants that grew right outside their backdoors, often with little cultivation or effort. Knowing how plants can be used medicinally is incredibly empowering for us as individuals, for our families, and for our communities.

In this two hour class, we will dig in to better understand 4-5 commonly used medicinal plants that thrive in our area. Information will be provided about their medicinal properties and suggestions will be given for how to grow them. Participants can expect to sample herbal teas, as taste is a huge part of understanding plants medicinally. All will also go home with a baby medicinal plant of their own.

Register here.
