Hands-On Herb Workshop: Medicinal Plants of Early Summer

June 3 @ 7:00 pm - June 5 @ 3:00 pm

$100.00 – $350.00


This weekend retreat introduces you to the medicinal herbs of early summer. Our location in the Southern Appalachians, a region sometimes referred to as the “Apothecary of North America,” promises you’ll meet a lot of well-known medicinal herbs such as black cohosh, blue cohosh, maidenhair fern, bloodroot, wild geranium, and more. Together, we’ll explore the incredible diversity of native, introduced, and cultivated herbs that thrive here. 


Patricia Kyritsi Howell and Cara-Lee Langston lead weekend activities including field botany, ethical harvesting, and medicine-making. 


Arrive Friday in time for an evening orientation and wild foods reception at the Parker Ranch. Saturday and Sunday mornings, we’ll head out to a local trail for some botanizing. You’ll learn to use a botanical key to identify herbs and practice sustainable harvesting as you gather herbs to make medicines. 


In the afternoon, we return to Parker Ranch to talk about the uses of the herbs we’ve seen and make some medicines from the plants we’ve gathered.


Cost for the weekend if you register and pay in full before May 1, 2022, is $300 and includes all supplies.

After May 1st, if there are places available, the cost is $350 and must be paid in full. If you choose to pay a deposit now, we will invoice you for the balance of your tuition ($200) in late April. Please be sure to read our Covid Policy before registering.
