Tinctures – Weeds to Remedies Fall Harvest
TINCTURES – WEEDS TO REMEDIES – A FALL HARVEST. 2pm Saturday October 29th.
Join Dr. Dave for a plant walk and basics on making wild medicinal tinctures at 2pm Saturday October 29th. Register here.
The nature of the walk will be determined by the plants in season. Find a new appreciation for some of your common backyard ‘weeds’ – cultivated, invasive and native plants with medicinal value. Dr. Dave will guide us on an exploratory walk and introduce us to a handful of fall plant personalities. Where local botanical lore meets modern plant wisdom, he will share the botanical’s role in healing, influence on body systems and why he has chosen to work with the plant in his formulas for clinical use. After the walk, Dr. Dave will process fresh herbs with the group to demonstrate how to make a simple botanical tincture extraction.
Class includes a 1oz formula ($15 value) to build your home apothecary!
Make a day of it. Stick around for the Salve Workshop at 4pm. Wild craft root medicine and make your own salve at 4pm.
Sign up for both for $45!
“Hello, folks. Story Book Farm has a personal emergency that will conflict with the scheduled date for our workshop. Given our full fall calendars, we plan to offer this course at the farm as part of a two part basic medicine making workshop. We look forward to offering a plant walk with Story Book Farm in the spring. Our hearts go out to our friends during their time of need. We look forward to seeing those of you who are interested in making medicine at our workshops scheduled later this month. Thank you!”
WE WILL ORGANIZE A PLANT WALK AT STORY BOOK FARM IN THE SPRING. PLEASE CHECK BACK FOR DETAILS.
Directions are provided upon registration. Reserve your spot.
**A little known fact: Our farm name was not originally Wish We Had Acres. When we carried home our very first dairy goat from the Arizona state fairgrounds in November 2009, we lived in Encanto, a Roosevelt era neighborhood of 800 sq ft detached homes on postage stamp lots. Though tiny, each home was steeped with architectural detail and distinct from it’s neighbor. With a handful of laying hens, a duck and the new addition of our dairy goat named Daisy, our little urban homestead looked to us like it was straight out of a storybook. To register a dairy goat you need a herd name. Inspired by our charming neighborhood, we became Storybook Farms…
When we met the Gardners 5 years later after an unplanned move 2400 miles East, we felt immediately at home. This beautiful farm lends itself to a walking tour with an adorable herd of Nigerian dwarf goats on over 20 acres and, on my personal local bucket list, a treehouse built by Treehouse Masters last December. Have you seen it?
