HERBALISM CLASSES WITH GWEN ADOMAITIS
NEW! Herbalist Gwen Adomaitis invites you to join her
in a seasonal exploration of herbs. This series of three
classes will build nicely upon each other, but each class
is designed to stand alone. Please join us for one, two,
or all three as you are able. Gwen has been studying
and learning from herbs for 20 years, and she loves
to talk plants with people who are just getting started
on their learning journey, as well as people who have
been learning for much longer. She has taught classes
to groups of all ages, and she especially enjoys helping
beginners feel comfortable and confident exploring the
world of herbs.

THE SLEEPING LAND – EXPLORING MICHIGAN HERBS IN WINTER (Ages 13+)
When we think of winter, we typically do not think of local
Michigan herbs. But there are plenty of plants alive and
ready to get to know. In this indoor class, we will learn about
several of these plants – including what type of habitats
they prefer and how to use them in our homes and with
our families. We will use all our senses as we touch and
taste preparations of these plants, so bring a willingness
to explore. Participants will leave with a new knowledge of
local winter plants, information on ethical harvesting, and a
hand out with information on the plants discussed in class.
Location:   Hawk Woods Lodge
Fee:   Free
Saturday:   1/28       1:00-3:00 pm       #116022a

THE COZIEST HERBS – MAKING AND USING HERBAL INFUSIONS (Ages 13+)
During the winter, we are often looking for ways to feel
warm and cozy. One of the best ways to warm up inside
and out is with herbal infusions, also known as herbal teas.
Our exploration will include learning about how to prepare
infusions, discussing what makes a good blend, including
why some herbs may have benefits beyond taste, and
tasting a couple of different infusions. Participants will take
home samples of a couple blends, recipes and information
about herbs for making infusions at home, and a tea ball to
use while making their infusions.

KITCHEN CUPBOARD HERBALISM – LEARNING TO USEWHAT WE HAVE (Ages 13+)
Our kitchen cupboards are often an unexpected source of
medicinal herbs. Come join us in a fun and hands on class
where we will explore how to use common kitchen herbs
and other items from the kitchen to help aid our bodies
when we are congested. We will learn about using a steam
preparation `that is easy to prepare and is invaluable f0r
both allergies and illnesses. Participants will leave this class
ready to make their own herbal steams – complete with a
written recipe and instructions, as well as a starter steam kit
to use at home.
