Fall Herbal Self Care Class 2
Time: 10-2PM Date :Oct 1
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 2 helps you to learn all about what food and weeds to get to know in Central Texas during Fall and how to incorporate them into your herbal creations. We will dive deep into successful gardening in Texas, exploring soils, companion planting, as well as how to compost and fertilize. We will discuss several foods and herbs to incorporate into fall beds, and wild weeds that come out in Fall. Students will learn about using Nutritive Herbs and Food as medicine by making a remedy they can eat right there in class as well as a special vinegar creation, known as a “shrub” to take home
