The Artful Herbalist Workshop with Ann Lovejoy
The art of gardening meets the arts of cooking, crafting and creating body care products with traditional herbs. From herb salts and fruit vinegars to teas and tinctures, from elegant wreaths and Elizabethan tussie-mussies to soothing salves and safe hair care for chemo patients, we’ll explore modern and traditional uses for garden herbs and flowers. Special focus will be on healing soil and sharing our gardens with birds, butterflies, and pollinators.
