Event Description
Ever wanted to learn the difference between an infusion and a decoction? Would you like to learn how to make your own infused oils and ointments? Are you interested in making your own medicine from plants and food? We are surrounded by an abundance of healing potential that is easily accessible with the right knowledge. Join Katrina for a 7 month class series on the basics of plant medicine. We will meet once a month from November to May in Katrina's kitchen to learn about common healing plants and foods, focusing on a different system of the body each month and at least 2 common plants that support that system. We will also be making the medicine right there, practicing multiple techniques, such as: teas, infusions, decoctions, infused oils, salves, syrups, tinctures, formularies, herbal bitters, and more! You will receive printed monographs for each herb topic, and will get to take home plant medicine that you make in class. Each session is $30 and includes all materials and supplies. Classes are stand-alone, so you can pick and choose which ones you want to attend. Class size is limited to 6 people per session, so don't wait to register. Classes are held in SE Portland. Exact address will be sent via email once registration is confirmed.
