For 2014 we will collaborate once again with Sacred Vibes Apothecary to present FREE workshops on using herbs for health and wellness. Participants will learn how to make their own teas, tinctures, and oils from plant varieties grown in our Healing Herb Garden.
Workshops will be taught be apprentices from Sacred Vibes, who study the art and practice of spiritual herbalism in an intensive two-year program with master herbalist Karen Rose. These apprentices will also work with Sustainable Flatbush Urban Farm & Garden Program Director Sheryll Durrant to plan and develop our Healing Herb Garden.
A total of eight workshops (up from last year’s six) will be held on Wednesday evenings and Saturday mornings this summer. Topics are still being determined but we’ve heard that they may include herbs for prenatal health, sexual health, and depression. Check the calendar on our website for final schedule and details!
