I’m über excited to announce this workshop series I’m co-teaching with Sokhna of MamaSutra…

Urban Herbology: A study of 3 local green allies

A weed is described as “a plant out of place.” We say, there’s no such thing!

Come explore the habits and virtues of 3 plants that grow right here in our urban environment:

red clover, burdock & dandelion.

Together we’ll discover their medicinal, culinary, cultural, spiritual & historical uses. Get a deeper understanding of our lovely green allies over the course of the growing season. Use all of your senses to enrich your relationship with these healing plants.
