Kitchen Cosmetics - April 16, 2016 1-3 pm

cleaning for the skin. We suggest that you arrive for this one sans
make-up and not terribly worried about your hair, because we will be
playing! We'll make all kinds of skin rejuvenating preparations, at a
perfect time to wake up your face after a long, dry winter. There will
be recipes and samples to take home. $25
Landis Valley Herb and Garden Faire is May 6th and 7th. We're directly across from the entrance.
Weed Walk, Medicinal - May 14, 2016 1-3 pm
If you have waterproof boots/shoes, wear them. We'll be walking down
into the woods and identifying some medicinal herbs, some spring
ephemeral flowers, and whatever else crosses our path. Then we'll
return to the workshop where some pre-infused oil (using some of the
herbs we've just identified) will be ready for us to strain and turn
into a wonderful healing salve.
Take home a jar of salve, a few
recipes using the herbs we saw, and also, you may want to bring a couple
bags so that you can take some weeds home to play with later. $25
Weed Walk, Edible - May 28, 2016 1-3 pm
It's hard to say exactly what we'll find and what we'll be eating,
but there will be plants to identify and we'll whip some of them up into
some interesting dishes. Part of the fun is the anticipation and
wondering what we'll find!
This is another one to bring/wear
your boots for. There will be recipes to take home, we'll be sampling
different foods, and you should probably bring along some baggies in
case there is a weed (or herb from the garden) that you'd like to take
Pre-registration is required.
Hope to see you there!
