Join the community herbalist Carley McConkey & clinical herbalist Melanie Hill, for a day of herbal deep diving. 

*Weather Depending* The day will begin with a herb walk through one of Collingwood's waterfront parks where we'll learn to connect with and identify a wide variety of medicinal and edible plants. We'll go over the ethics and technicalities of harvesting plants, as well as ways to deepen our personal and spiritual connections with the earth.

After the walk, we'll take a short lunch break before diving into the hands on component in the afternoon. 

Melanie & Carley will co-lead a hybrid lecture, demonstration and hands-on afternoon where we explore the possibilities of herbal medicine in the average kitchen. We'll be covering topics such as:

- Tea Blending and discerning what an infusion, decoction and cold infusion really are
- Herbal Infused Oils (culinary + topical)
- Oxymels 
- Herbal Infused Vinegars 
- Cooking with medicinal herbs 

The day is a perfect intro to those who are herb-curious and keen to implement herbal medicine into their day to day lives. Herbalism is the people's medicine, and this is a great first step to taking charge of your health, connecting deeply to your surroundings, and diversifying your kitchen routines.

You'll go home with a tea blend, an infused oil / vinegar and/or oxymel, as well as lots of resources and easy to replicate recipes and information from the day.
