Winter Wellness with Hands-on Medicine Making with Spoonful Herbals
Join community herbalists Katherine Elmer and Kara Buchanan to explore key herbal strategies to prevent and relieve symptoms of common winter ailments. Participants will learn how to make elderberry and wild cherry bark syrup, simple and traditional herbal winter wellness formulas, and take home jars of their own!
Spoonful Herbals is the collaborative effort of community herbalists and educators Katherine Elmer and Kara Buchanan. Spoonful offers an annual Herbal CSA, which includes three seasonal herbal self-care packages. Each provides 4-5 varied formulas, with detailed educational guidance about the plant ingredients and their uses along with educational events for members, all for $150 with convenient share pickup at Railyard Apothecary. Spoonful also runs a six-month Community Herbalism Apprenticeship program where students learn how to identify, harvest, and create remedies from native and locally-grown medicinal herbs. Spoonful’s Herb Mob program engages volunteers to bring locally harvested (gleaned) medicinal plants into our apothecary from local organic farms and green spaces such as Shelburne Farms.
