Herbal Intensives in the Green Mountains of Vermont this Summer
Clinical Herbalist Emily French, owner of Sweetgrass Herbals, will present two, two-day herbal intensives in the Green Mountains of Vermont this summer. The intensives, which take place July 26 and 27 and August 16 and 17, include hands-on medicine making, plant identification and wildcrafting walks, along with information on addressing common health issues with herbs.
“Participants can enjoy delicious, home-cooked food, cozy camping and in-depth study of the uses, preparations and dosages of locally abundant plant medicines,” says French. “Potent medicinal plant allies surround us and, whether you’re focused on preventive care or seeking help for existing health issues, you’ll benefit from knowing which plants to use and how to harvest and prepare them for year-round use.”
As a teacher, French has introduced many students to herbal medicine and the notion of community- based health care. The cost for each intensive, including meals and materials, is $250. Those who register with a friend pay just $225.
