Fall Herbal Self Care Class 5
Time: 10-2PM Date :Oct 22
Are you ready to get started learning about herbs? This series is to help you “fill your cup” with likeminded people who want to share in the green path of land stewardship, nature connection, and of course, plant medicine! We are excited to have you join us this Fall for some fun and engaging classes to get you started on the green path. These classes will prepare you for next years programs, or may be taken as part one of the “in person” section of the Home and Family Program(part 2 in Spring). Apply here if you’d like to build this into a program, otherwise, just register above!
We will be introducing you to local Fall medicinal plants in Central Texas, medicine making, nature stewardship, growing plants, how herbs work, and how to take care of yourself.
Classes are in an outdoor setting, in Hill Country just South of Austin and center around Autumn. You may sign up for the classes as a series or take them individually.
Class 5 come see how herbalists have more fun! Not only can we use herbs for therapeutic reasons, but for body care, beauty, and fun! This class will be the final one in our Fall series! We will dive into how to use simple ingredients from your kitchen, along with a few special herbs from your yard for home to create beauty enhancing remedies. In particular we will be looking at different medicated oils used to heal, soothe and moisturize and make a special remedy for your skin. We will also look at how aroma and scent play a part in these remedies, and how to use plant aromatics in your creations. Students will go home with a salve and make their own bath blend.
Your instructors are community herbalists Jenny Perez and Darlene Starr. They have been working with herbs in Central Texas for many years, and are community activists in permaculture and land stewardship. Jenny supervises our pharmacy and permaculture sections in Advanced Programs and Darlene assists with Introductory studies and our herbalists Without Borders work in the community making herbalism accessible to all.
