Whew!  That's a list!

We also do a couple of drawings for some of the herbal preparations that we make during this meeting. 

We always begin the evening with refreshments.
We invite you to bring a refreshment to share.
Food has always been a topic of discussion/learning at all of our past
 My hubby always prepares some super delicious and very healthy food.
Be prepared for yum!

As a part of the evening's learning experience, we always try to do a bit of 'weed-walking' in the yard and gardens.  I grow several culinary and medicinal herbs.  And of course the natural grown 'weeds' are everywhere.  We will harvest what is available in order to learn about the herb through all of our senses.   We can learn a lot about an herb by the various sensory experiences we have with a plant.

Go HERE to sign up.  Or just show up!

Herbal Basics 1: Review

  Nervine Herbs

Herbal Basics 1:  Nervine Herbs
Ready for our first class/workshop on March 14, 2017.
Early Spring:  Nervine Herbs growing in the garden! 

Here are a few of the ladies who came to the Herbal Basics 1 Class.
We were tasting several herbal nervines that were made into medicinal teas.
As a review, we learned many awesome facts about how to take care of our Nervous System.  We also learned wonderful information about specific herbs that are toning and nourishing to our nervous systemI am always inspired by how 'fearfully and wonderfully' we are made.  Our bodies are amazing!  The world of plants and weeds is also very incredible!
Most of us are not familiar with the world of herbs and how beneficial they are to our body systems. As we continue with our monthly 'Herbal Basics' workshops/classes it will become more clear that the world of weeds/herbs need not be intimidating.  Working with plants and introducing them in beneficial ways to the human body needs to be re-addressed and re-introduced to others.  We have lost this beautiful 'art and science' of herbs in our everyday living.  I want to share my 'love' of herbs with others.  I invite you to join us each month for a hands-on learning experience that will change the way you think about weed/herbs!

I am excited to introduce the forming of classes/workshops here at

The first class/workshop scheduled is:
Herbal Basics 1
Tuesday, March 14 at 6pm

The topics of Herbal Basics 1 will include discussing how to grow/buy good quality herbs and how to store them for a longer shelf life.  We will learn how to make nervine herbal preparations that specifically nourish and strengthen the Nervous System.  The herbal preparations that we will be learning how to make are medicinal teas prepared by the infusion and decoction methods.  Of course this is a very simple outline.  There will be other various topics of learning in this first class that you won't want to miss.

As always, we love to give 'welcome gifts' when you attend our classes/workshops!  So be prepared to take home samples of some of the evening's preparations that we are making! 
We will also have a drawing or two for extra fun!
Oh, and of course the 'hand-outs' of the class discussion will be invaluable to add to your notebook of herbal study!

As we go through this year's Herbal Basics series, I will be adding educational pages to 
The Herbal Life page of the topics that we learn about each month.
