This CSA option is appropriate for beginning herbalists and community-based learners. Over the course of the year, we’ll meet 24 new herbs and get to know them through taste, touch, and smell. Through a monthly, hour, and a half-long exploration, we’ll come to know these herbs and their uses as food and herbal health support. You’ll learn basic skills like how to clean, prepare, dry, and store your herbs at home. In class, we’ll experiment with different applications covering vinegar infusions, fermentation, salves, and infused oils, teas, herbals dips and marinades, tinctures, bitters, oxymel, and ciders. The herbs we will meet in this CSA are nutritive, gentle, and safe. Each month will include a digital newsletter with profiles for each herb as well as resources, recipes, and study suggestions. Each class will be accompanied by a “cheat sheet” full of ideas for how to prioritize your processing and herbal play once you get home with your share. When possible, we will visit wild herbs (like Jewelweed and Cleavers) in their habitat.
