May 1-July 31 Harvesting & Medicine Making ​8-10PM EST online


We will discuss safe and effective harvesting, and prime time for harvest.  Beyond that we explore all the diverse ways of preserving, storing and making useful medicines from our harvest - gardens as well as trees and wild plants.  Maybe we'll be using fresh herbs, or dried? Whole plant? Aerial parts? Roots or rhizomes? And making tinctures? Oxymels? Infused oils? Vinegars? Salves? Glycerites? When do we add vinegar to a tincture - how much can you heat an extracted oil? A world of medicine making awaits us!  

This 13 week series about harvesting, making and storing herbal medicines is scheduled to coincide with growing seasons from Georgia to New England and the Great Lakes bioregion. 

If you are newer to medicine making - then this series is for you, online using an interactive Round Table setting and your own herbs at home.  Also, if you want to increase and expand your apothecary and your range of herbal medicines - this will be a great place to do that work.  

Classes will run online using a Zoom platform
May 1st through July 31st

Each week we’ll divide our time
~ teaching technique, in real time, sharing harvesting and medicine making experiences. This is the perfect class to begin or enhance building a sustainable apothecary, for yourself, family and friends and clients too.

The Round Table affords a safe, gentle and open-minded atmosphere for growth & development. All of our online classes are recorded, both audio & video should folks wish to study - or perhaps miss a class.
