July 2016 Medicinal Herbs

Monday, July 18 from 6:00 – 8:00 p.m.

Right outside your back door is nature's pharmacy! Learn from herbalist, Gayle Curtis, about the curative qualities of plants you might see there – medicine the way Great Grandma used to make it.

We'll take a walk through Joey & Jesse’s Herb Garden discussing common folklore of these medicinal plants, how and when to gather them, as well as usage for the upcoming cold and flu season. This is an introduction to the beneficial qualities of herbs for personal use, not to replace medical care.
