Winter Wellness with Herbs
Join local Herbalist Heather Ware for look at the many ways in which herbs
can support us during the winter months. The darkness and cold weather put
extra pressure on our bodies, our resources, at this time so we often feel
low on energy and succumb to infections like coughs and colds. It’s the
perfect time to turn to our green allies.. those which can be gathered
during times of more abundant warmth and light and stored and preserved for
all year use.
We’ll cover ways to support vitality and resilience in general with herbs
as well as specific remedies for common winter ailments. Will include
practical activities and a handout to take away.
