MAGICAL HERB WALK & TALK WORKSHOP
Come to Bear Roots Forest to spend the day surrounded by the magic of nature!
In the morning, Tatum from Bear Roots, will begin the day with a herb walk that will focus on wild plants that are growing all around us. She will also take you into the teaching gardens to teach you about plants that you can grow in your gardens. Plants that you can expect to meet and learn about during the walk include St. John’s Wort, Red Clover, Nettle, Calendula, Valerian, Motherwort, Hyssop, Hawthorn, Burdock, Yellow Dock, Plantain, and many more!
After the herb walk, you will enjoy a farm-to-table lunch prepared by Bear Roots Kitchen.
In the afternoon, Sarah from Mystic Moons, will discuss the magical properties and uses of the herbs we will meet in the morning with Tatum. She will share about local lore, how to connect to the local land and spirits. You will also learn some of the appropriate offerings to give in thanks to what it is you take.

Aren’t we lucky to have such easy access to a plant that provides us with an abundance of nutrition as well as medicinal benefits?! The time is now to get out there to dig up the roots, and pick the dandelion leaves & flowers to use in the kitchen and to make medicine with.

It breaks down every aspect of the Dandelion by the plant part as well as provides you with over 30 Dandelion recipes!
