Join Medical Herbalist and Botanist Latifa Pelletier-Ahmed for an exploration into local in-season plant species that can help to reduce stress and anxiety. We will cover an introduction to the nervous system from the perspective of herbal medicine. We will look at specific plants that can reduce stress and anxiety, and related symptoms such as muscle tension. Learn how to identify, harvest, and prepare common wild plants for medicine. Learn how to live more in tune with the seasons and our local landscape.
Locally-harvested plant species for demonstration will be provided, as well as tinctures and teas for tasting.
