Don’t call St John’s Ambulance when St John’s Wort will do! In this workshop, Community Herbalist Ali Jopp will teach you how to make medicine from plants that you can find in and around Victoria.

We’ll go over the components of a herbal first aid kit and learn about characteristics, harvest and uses of various medicinal plants, as well as how to make your own healing herbal concoctions.  Each participant will leave with  a salve, tincture, liniment and instructional zine!

Location:  The multipurpose room at the Fernwood Community Centre.  The FCC is just around the corner from the Compost Education Centre, at 1240 Gladstone St.  To reach the multipurpose room, head in the front doors and turn left.

Suggested donation:  $15-20 sliding scale, with no one turned away (I know this is higher than the cost of most SLUGS workshops, but it will help us cover the cost of materials and space rental.  As always, we have a “no one turned away” policy, so please don’t feel like you need to miss this workshop if the price is out of your budget.  We value community accessibility!)
