upcoming 2-part workshop:
***Nourishing our Nervous Systems for the Long Haul***
with Dana L Woodruff of Dandelioness Herbals
even busy bees need to rest
Feeling frazzled? Drained? Burnt out? Let’s carve out some time together to replenish and rejuvenate in this 2-part work/playshop. We will explore ways to nourish our nervous systems by drawing on simple self-care practices and medicine-making with common abundant herbs that grow here to support ourselves, our loved ones, and communities. In both sessions we’ll make calming remedies collectively both to bring home and to share with community based organizations.
This is a hands-on class with lots of show (& taste) and tell and learning directly from the plants and each other. We will focus on practical ways that we can integrate relaxing herbs both internally and externally into our everyday lives. While created with caregivers, gardeners, and community organizers in mind, all experience levels and backgrounds are welcome.
This 2-part workshop takes place Friday Oct 27 and Friday Nov 10 5:30-7:30pm in Plainfield, VT.
Space is limited, please reserve your spot soon by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
