Season of Summer: Plants and their Remedies (7/10/21 in Ft. Payne, AL)
July 10, 2021 @ 9:00 am - 3:00 pm$25
Join Field School Instructor, Donna Smith, for our Summer class in the Seasonal Wellness Series. Built for both the new herbal enthusiasts as well as the more advanced apothecarist, this series will help you learn more about our native plants, their many uses, and how to grow and process them in the context of your own at-home medicinal herb garden. All of this will be focused on herbs and their uses in the season of Summer, and what we need to be doing in our gardens and medicine cabinets based on the specific health needs of the season. In addition, we will be learning about native, naturally-occurring medicinals in North Alabama during a plant walk at the Canyon Center and then, after class ends, an optional visit to Donna’s farm and medicinal garden down the road!
