Growing Medicinal Herbs in the Home Garden
Come learn how to get started growing your own medicine cabinet in the home garden! This course will cover a range of basics about starting, growing, harvesting and using medicinal herbs that grow well in our coastal climate. We will go for a garden walk to see, touch, smell, and taste herbs and learn about what they need in order to thrive from your garden to your kitchen. We will look at dried herbs, discuss drying methods and storage of your harvest, and experience the feel of mixing up a bulk batch of herbal tea by hand (you'll get to take some home with you!) We will talk about how growing and using herbs with the seasons can empower each of us to cultivate the healer within for ourselves and our families.

Participants will leave with cuttings and seeds of easy to grow herbs, as well as a 12 oz bag of tea.

About the Instructor:
Cameron (Cami) Salomon has a passion for plants! She has spent the last 16 years farming, gardening, and studying permaculture and herbalism in New Zealand, Australia, Peru, Chile, and California. She completed 3 years of formal Herbalism programs through the California School of Herbal Studies in Forestville, CA and at Mount Madonna Institute of Ayurveda in Watsonville. In 2018, Cami broke ground on her farm business, founding Kindred Herbs, a small organic medicinal plant nursery in Santa Cruz. In the first year, Kindred Herbs offered up to 60 different medicinal plants to the home gardener.
