Cordials and Candies, Root Medicine and Propagation
September 28 – Noon-3 PM
Trillium Center, 715 Furnace Rd., Conneaut, OH

Autumn provides optimal weather for gathering root medicines. We will gather roots and make remedies that make the dark months something to look forward to. As we gather roots, we’ll practice propagation techniques to insure that the plants will return again the following year. This month we’ll learn about medicinal cordials, candies, and hot winter drinks. This workshop is part of the Summer Herbal Intensive program, but drop-ins are welcome. Drop in class fee is $35. Send an email to trilliumctr@gmail.com to let us know you are coming. Learn more about the Summer Herbal Intensive program at serpentineproject.blogspot.com.
