Join facilitator Bo Del Valle Garcia in a day long immersion into herbalism, foraging, medicine making, and mushroom cultivation. As part of this workshop we will venture into the wild spaces of Norquay Food Forest to get to know the plants and fungi growing in our community. We will then learn how to craft medicines such as teas, vinegars, salves and tinctures. We will also discuss mushrooms, how to cultivate them, as well as their medicinal properties.
