1:00 PM - 3:00 PM

Tuition: $25  Materials: $25

Join us as we learn the basics of identifying, harvesting, and utilizing some of the most common medicinal herbs in Northern Minnesota. In this hands-on class, students will learn how to identify, harvest, dry, store, and use some of the most common medicinal herbs native to Northern Minnesota. This will be an in-classroom discussion as well as hands-on class- students will work with some freshly harvested herbs and will also learn to prepare some common remedies with them such as tincturing, teas, and infusions. Each student will take home their own herbal remedy made in class, and a Minnesota Medicinals handbook with photos, step-by-step instructions, and recipes!
