Elderberry Syrup Class

IMG_2928

Saturday  August 12th, 2017    $20   1-3pm

Hosted by Garden Dreams, 806 Holland Ave, Pittsburgh, PA 15221

Elderberries are starting to ripen!  It’s the perfect time to learn all about this trusted traditional remedy for keeping you and your family healthy.   We will be in the garden with the elderberries, learning about how they grow, what their seasons are normally like (and how this year has been different), which parts of the plant to use and which to avoid and so much more!  We will harvest from Garden Dreams’ own plants to make our syrup during this class.  Everyone will get to take home a 1 ounce bottle of this precious purple liquid from our batch that day, as well as a recipe guideline and some hands-on know how.
 This event is canceled! If rescheduled, I will post here!

Wednesday, August 16th $5-10 sliding scale  6:30pm

Millvale Riverfront Park (meet at pavilion)

Do you find yourself biking by plants without even saying hello? Would you like to get to know the shy, unassuming, friendly plants that you share a city with? (Ok, that one in the picture is not so friendly…)

Join Moirin (of Bridget’s Apothecary) and Nick (of Butter Hill Farm) for a fun and informative wild plant bike ride! We’ll be talking about what inspired us to get to know plants better, how to identify common plants of this area, which ones have edible parts, and how to harvest/prepare them, and the historical and practical uses of plants as medicine. This event is rain or shine (it may be postponed in case of lightning).   It’s also part of BikeFest!  Check out Bike Pgh’s entire calendar of events for BikeFest HERE

Let’s go for a ride!

As the season winds down, let’s talk about what to do with all of those delicious, medicinal herbs you’ve been saving.  We’ll talk about what makes a good tea formula, how to make it palatable, and we’ll be mixing our own teas and tasting them as we adjust. Dried herbs are provided, and everyone will take home a one ounce mix of their own medicinal herbal tea.
