September 20, 3:00-7:00 p.m. in Littleton (location available upon registration)
We’ll take a plant walk, make and drink some wild sumac-ade; snack on Autumn olives; learn about when to use alcohol, vinegar, and glycerin for making tinctures; and make two kinds of herbal tinctures.
Cost: $45. per family. You’ll go home with two jars of homemade herbal tinctures worth more than that.
Because this requires a considerable amount of supplies purchased in advanced, pre-registration is required.
Bring a Swiss army knife or pruning shears and a basket. Since we’ll be out into the early evening, you’ll also want warm clothing. Anyone old enough to handle sharp tools, such as a Swiss army knife or pruning shears is welcome to participate; we will be using our tools both for harvesting and for cutting herb roots and perhaps other parts of herbs.
