NATURE’S PHARMACY: MEDICINE MAKING WORKSHOP (San Francisco Bay Area)
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. This is an interactive class so please come ready to get your hands dirty while having a lot of fun! All materials will be provided and each student will leave with a product s/he helped prepare.

Frequently asked questions:
-So I paid the class fee via PayPal...am I now officially registered and on the roster? Yes, your spot in class is now secure. PayPal will not accept payments when a class is already sold out.
-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 younger 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 sorts of workshops at around 25 students.
-When should I expect to receive directions, carpool info, and other more specific class details?
