2 hours total - 40$ per person

Offered in English

What we’ll do

This class will focus on turning herbs from our farm into a useful remedy for you to take home. Firstly we will share a cup of tea from our organic farm, discuss how to safely use herbs and making sure nothing will interact with any current medicines or illnesses that you may have. Secondly we will then move onto the topic of how to make herbal transformations using oils, alcohols, vinegar etc. Then we will move onto making your own herbal remedy to take home. This remedy can take a few different forms and every workshop is custom made to your own needs. Here are a few suggestions for what you can make:

1) A herbal honey infused with Thyme & Sage Flowers great for sore throats

2) A nutritional apple cider vinegar high in iron and calcium made with Nettle, Dandelion & Oats

3) A herbal infused vodka (tincture) with Chamomile & Valerian to help with anxiety and insomnia

4) A beeswax and olive oil ointment with Calendula flowers to help sooth dry, cracked or chapped skin

5) A herbal tea blend, custom made to suit any of your needs

Please note everything is subject to what is available from our farm. We will discuss what you would like in more detail before the workshop starts.

We will host the workshop in my apartment which is not only in the heart of downtown Montreal but very close to several medicinal herb gardens as well. We can always go to the nearby gardens at the end of the workshop to visit the plants we have worked with. It is from my apartment that I have my own herbal apothecary situated and where I create all of my own personal remedies for myself and friends.

Booking can be made here or message us directly through WeLoveNettles@gmail.com

 This tour is open to the complete herbal newcomer or those with existing green thumbs - We work with all knowledge levels. First we will start in a nearby park, introduce ourselves and share our first cup of herbal tea (grown at our soon to be certified organic farm.) In the park we will learn some of the processes to aid plant identification and the more common plants and trees growing around us. After the park we will begin to explore the back streets of Montreal, searching for those plants we have just learned about and learning about their history, cultural context and medicinal or culinary uses. We will finish with a second tea tasting, a summation of what we've learnt and the knowledge of some new plant allies that we can find growing all around us.  No registration necessary,  facebook event here  suggested donation $15
