In this six-part series, participants will learn how herbs can treat many acute and chronic illnesses that are commonly experienced by families including respiratory infections, digestive illness, ear infections, sore throats, auto-immunity, first aid and skin treatments.
Participants will get hands-on instruction on how to prepare and use herbal remedies. They will also learn how to identify medicinal plants, experiencing them as living beings during a field class in an urban medicine garden. Students will take home a bottle of tincture and a jar of salve that are made during the sessions and will also build a booklet of reference handouts to keep. This series is designed to accompany the Herbalism II Series class, but may also be taken on its own. Each class is 2 hours, except the first aid and salve making class, which is 3 hours. The cost is $150 plus tax for the series, which includes a supplies fee to cover the cost of all herbal preparations. Class is limited to 8. This class is offered through The Old School and takes place at 1300 Girard NE. To register for this class please visit www.albuquerqueherbalism.com
