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 3: Are you curious about how to take care of your first aid needs in Fall with local plants? Prevention is the best medicine! What does self care in Fall look like? We will bring you through practices to keep yourself well, and then what to do if you need help. This class teaches you all about several popular folk remedies that herbalists make in Fall, and types of preparations that can come out of your garden or lawn. We will introduce you to how plants work in the body(their actions) and show several examples. Students will take home a remedy for Fall Wellness and First Aid as well as learning how to use herbs on wounds directly from the garden.
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.
