Bartram’s Garden
5400 Lindbergh Blvd.

In this workshop, we will cover some simple remedies you can make in your kitchen with commonly available herbs to help ward off the common cold and flu. You will learn how to make cough syrup, fire cider, anti-microbial tea, and a sinus-clearing steam. We will also cover guidelines for using immune-stimulating herbs like Echinacea and Elder. Everyone will go home with a jar of fire cider!
