A handout will be available with recipes, and tips for incorporating local plants in daily menus for their nutritional and immune boosting properties, as well as herbal uses in first aid, pre and post natal care, childhood diseases, and common discomforts.

The workshop will be lead by Dan Riegler of New Dawn Herbal Apothecary. Dan is also the designer and Master Gardener behind the Apothecary’s Garden.
