Conifers are usually (though not always) tall evergreen trees. In our region, we all grew up calling them “pine” trees, but that’s not entirely accurate. We’ve got hemlock, spruce, fir, pine, and more! Most of them can be used in a similar way for medicine. And because they often keep their needles throughout winter, they offer many of their gifts to us year-round. Come learn about the ways you can work with these majestic trees. We will be making a conifer elixir, and everyone will get to take home a beautiful one ounce amber jar of this beneficial and delicious liquid.

Bitter flavors can actually help our natural digestive secretions work better and and help us digest more easily. In this class we’ll discuss how bitters can improve health, beginning bitters for sensitive palates, ways to get more bitter flavors into our diets, the history of using bitter tonics, and how to make your own blend of aromatic bitters. Everyone will take home a 1/2 ounce amber bottle of aromatic bitters they blended themselves.

Saturday, December 9th  2017    $25        1-3pm

Despite winter settling in, this is still a time of abundance in the forest!  Grapevines provide a sturdy base to start a wreath, and your imagination will do the rest.  Conifers, dried flower stalks, and seed pods all lend themselves beautifully to a wild foraged wreath.  Supplies and instruction will be provided and you are welcome to bring your own elements or forage your own from the nursery to add to your wreath.  Everyone will take home (at least) one wreath of their own making.
