Many hands at work preparing sumacade.

We’ll start off the season on Sept. 18 with a weed walk and tincture making. Exactly what we’ll do depends on the plants, but likely activities include making and drinking sumacade, sampling Autum olives, making goldenrod tincture, and making burdock tincture. If we have time, we may also make a salad.

In December, we’ll do herbal gift making. You’ll go home with lovely herbal gifts, including herbal vinegar, herbal shampoo and soap, and an herbal dream pillow.

In January, we’ll make herbal salves, honeys, and syrups. In February, we’ll have an herbal spa day with footbaths and facials. You’ll get to take an herbal footbath home, as well as at least one product that we make.

In June, we’ll see what’s springing up all around us. What we make will depend on the plants, of course, but a spring salad, nettle soup, and nettle vinegar all seem likely.

In July, we’ll have even more to see on our plant walks, and we’ll probably make tinctures.
