Tea Blends for Stress

Saturday, June 29th 10am-12pm

Location: Garden Dreams, 806 Holland Ave, Pittsburgh, PA 15221

Are you stressed?  Would you love to have some go-to plant allies to work with when you are feeling overwhelmed and anxious?  Or perhaps this feels like your normal state and you want some nourishing daily support?  This class will be focusing on your nervous system responses, what we can change and what we can’t.   We will be talking and touring the garden, testing, tasting, and smelling different herbs and learning how to blend them into our own personalized loose leaf herb infusion specifically for stress and overwhelm.  Everyone will take home a 1 ounce blend of their own.

$20 includes 1 ounce personal blend of herbs for tea!

Peach Soda

Syrups, Shrubs, and Sodas

Saturday July 13th 1pm-3pm

Location: Garden Dreams, 806 Holland Ave, Pittsburgh, PA 15221

Using seasonal fruit, herbs, and vinegar, we’ll learn how to make refreshing, hydrating, healing, and delicious drinks the whole family can enjoy. There’s a reason that the first pharmacies were also the local soda fountains. It was a palatable way to help people take their medicine. That was back when “medicine” meant herbs, and the “tonic” in your water was made from the bark of a tree. We’ll perfect a few delicious and nutritious recipes, that will have you wanting more than just a sip!
