Free Medicinal Herb Class

Sunday, October 30, 2022, 12–1:30 pm

As per our recent conversations in the garden ancient cultures and plant wisdom, we’re going to do something a little different on Sunday. We will send ourselves on a Plant Journey, where we pick a plant to meditate near and ask for it to speak with us. I think this will be a nice departure from the academic approach we usually take, and also the time of year is right! The veil is very thin during Samhain! That said, this will not be a pagan ritual, but more of an exploration of the energy plants can give to us as green beings. 

Medicinal Plot on the SW side.

There is no charge, but donations are welcome.

Class will end promptly at 1:30 pm.
