Make your own Herbal Medicine

  • Garden For The Environment 1590 7th Ave San Francisco, CA, 94122 United States (map)

Many of us have lost our connection to plants and their powerful healing properties.  Perhaps you had a grandmother that would make you tea to calm your stomach or soothe your sore throat.  A surprising number of our common garden plants have been used for centuries to ease everyday health problems and support overall wellness. 

In addition to seeing patients in private practice, I co-founded The Backyard Apothecary.  Our mission is to teach people how to create wellness and treat everyday ailments with plants form the abundance of their backyard.  

This introductory class will cover:

- how to incorporate the top medicinal plants for our area into an attractive garden
- how to care for and harvest them
- how to make them into your own medicinal tea, tincture, salve and steam inhalation. 

As part of the class we'll make several herbal remedies that will be yours to take home so you can start your own backyard medicine cabinet.  We'd love to have you there!
