Herbal Certification Course
The Herb Corner is once again offering Reclaiming Your Roots, an herbal certification course. It will take place on alternate Sundays from June through August. This three-month journey will provide students with an in-depth study of the healing properties of herbs so that they will learn how to treat non-emergency health issues and gain a grounding in the basics of herbal medicine making by creating teas, tinctures, salves, syrups, and compresses.
The classes, led by Master Herbalist Cecelia Avitabile, will put participants on the road to learning health-promoting herbal skills that have nearly been lost in our modern world. Classes will include instruction on herbs for all the body systems, along with choices that are appropriate for women, men, children and pets. Classes will include how to use herbs for the digestive, nervous, circulatory, urinary, respiratory, immune, muscular and skeletal systems. Two nature walks are scheduled, one at Turkey Creek and the other in an herbalist’s garden.
