Healing plants are all around us! They are in our gardens as cultivated plants, in our lawns as weeds, or in the woods as mosses on trees. In this introduction you will learn about local plants and some of their stories in folklore, ways to cultivate them and ways to integrate them into your kitchen and medicine chest. The workshop will have class time, time out in the garden, a snack of herbal homemade tea and lavender cookies, and a class project to make your own herbal lip balm. Class fee is $30 and it includes all materials plus Rosemary Gladstar’s Medicinal Herbs: A Beginner’s Guide. Class size will be limited to 25 –registration/payment due by September 18th to CCE Albany County, Community Horticulture, Attention Sue Pezzolla, 24 Martin Road, Voorheesville, NY 12186 Questions: Sue Pezzolla 518-765-3516 or email: sep37@cornell.edu.
