Kitchen Medicine – Garden Farmacy
Join us in the heart of the home – the kitchen – to concoct remedies from locally grown herbs to heal everyday ailments.
Throughout history, mothers and grandmothers of every culture and tradition have been the source of healing in the family. In the kitchen – the heart of the home – remedies for everyday ailments were made from locally grown and easily accessible herbs. These days it isn’t necessarily the mother, or even a women, but the foundations of kitchen medicine remain the same – it’s the art of making medicine for everyday ailments out of common ingredients sourced from your garden and pantry.
During this hands-on workshop, trainer Naabi Methe will introduce you to herbal medicine making. You will also:
Take a walk through the CERES garden beds
Bring the wisdom of traditional herbal medicine into a modern context
Explore traditional and modern uses of plants
Learn how to introduce these plants into the kitchen as medicine
