Grow your own medicine chest. This class is an introduction to gardening with medicinal herbs. We will cover growing, propagation, seed saving, and uses of common medicinal herbs. The focus is on the "medicine chest" herbs, the ingredients for treating conditions that are typically treated with over the counter medications.
Celt Schira wants to teach you how to take care of yourself and your loved ones using low energy, highly sophisticated, low tech folk knowledge.
