Come join us as we learn to create a variety of botanical medicines using many native California plants. During this intensive class we will learn the fundamental methods for making a number of preparations, including: teas, tinctures,
herbal oils, salves, liniments, and syrups. Starting with an overview of some basic principles of plant chemistry, we will examine different extraction methods while learning when they can be best applied. The remainder of the class will be devoted to preparing a number of different herbal products, giving us a chance to put theory into practice.

Frequently asked questions:
-Can I bring my dog? Sorry, no pets (for a litany of reasons).
-Is it OK to bring my child? My 8-hour adult-level workshops are in no way suitable for children. Trust me: they would be bored to tears.
-I see that hundreds/thousands of people have clicked on "interested and/or going" for this event...what are your class size limits? Don't take Facebook numbers too seriously folks...I cap these types of workshops at around 20 students :) That said, it IS true that my classes tend to fill to capacity months ahead of time...so procrastination is not recommended if you are hoping to secure a spot.
-When should I expect to receive directions, carpool info, and other more specific class details? As is CLEARLY stated in the above class description: "Detailed directions and other more specific class info (including carpool networking) will be emailed out to the registered/paid students by October 31.
