Saturday, January 12
Time: 12 – 3 pm
We’re launching our first workshop for 2019 with a bang! This is an indoor workshop in a beautiful farm setting.
Bitters ~ Bartenders use bitters in tasty cocktails while herbalists use bitters to support a healthy digestive system. We’ll discuss the anatomy and physiology of this body system and how bitters go far beyond digestive health to weight loss, reversing chronic inflammation, and much more. We’ll even delve into the compounds that present the bitter profiles in the herbs we study during the workshop.
Students will learn how to make bitter simples and the beautiful complexity of creating formulas that join potent medicinal plants with aromatics to create one-of-a-kind blends. My motto is “get the medicine to the people in ways that they’ll take it!” We’ll discuss ways to seamlessly add bitters to our diet as well as creative ways to introduce these powerful medicinal creations to others. Fun and yummy bitter treats will be on hand to taste.
Make and Take! At the end of this information-packed workshop, students will leave with tools in their herbal medicine tool belt and two bitters formulations that they’ll create with the herbs provided.
What to bring:
- 2 eight ounce half pint jars.
- Pint of 100 proof vodka or gin and/or apple cider vinegar
- Cutting board and chopping knife
- Notebook, pen, snack
Workshop will be held at 21 Acres Farm! Details are in the registration confirmation email. See YOU there!
