Make + Take: Medicinal Spring Tonics (2019)

  • Date: April 14, 2019
  • Time: 8:00am - 10:00am

As the plants start to come to life after winter, our metabolism and energy also increase. Spring tonics like nettle, dandelion, chickweed, and cleavers have been used to help us transition into a faster paced time of year. Come learn about these early medicinals and make a spring tonic vinegar infusion. If you can bring a 4-8oz glass jar with a lid, that would be great. Materials provided.

Members: $15

Non-members: $20

Southwest Neighbors & ACCESS Card Holders: $2
