Learning the Basics of Herbal Medicine

Want to learn more about herbal medicine, but not sure where to start? Join us for an experiential and informative talk on incorporating herbal medicine into your lifestyle. This talk offers gems for new and seasoned herbalists alike! We will discuss some back-to-nature home remedies and effective herbal medicines (including kitchen vegetables, spices, well known herbal medicines and wild plants) for common family health issues and ways of using herbal medicines in your home for routine first aid, topical applications, and medicinal uses. There will be an opportunity to ‘sample the flavours’ of some gentle herbs during this talk (so bring a spoon and a drinking mug!). Copies of Katolen Yardley’s book, “Good Living Guide to Natural and Herbal Remedies”, will also be available for purchase for $25.
