Herbalism is the oldest system of healing in the world. Herbs grow everywhere around us, but so many people are still unfamiliar with them, have concerns about their safety, or don’t know how to use them for ultimate effectiveness. In this practical and inspiring workshop, Rosemary will share the essentials of practicing herbalism as a home healing art. Combining historical use and modern research, she will discuss important safety issues, herbal preparation, and the medicinal uses of some of our most commonly available herbs. Rosemary will also share some of her all time favorite recipes, including recipes for winter health.
A pioneer in the modern herbal movement, Rosemary Gladstar has been called the "godmother of American herbalism." She has been practicing, living, learning, teaching and writing about herbs for over 40 years.
