Welcome to MXED GREENS' 2023 Medicine Making 101 Workshop Series!
Last year, we hosted a medicine making crash course at Just Roots called "Never Too Many Mason Jars," and this year we've expanded the idea to create a full workshop series to learn practical herbalism skills.
Throughout 2023, you'll get to dive in to a different herbal medicine preparation with us. All materials are provided, and you'll get to take home the medicine you make each time. At the start of each month, we'll announce the date and open registration for that month's workshop. All experience levels welcome, no need to have attended the previous month's 101 workshops to attend!
Class #4: Glycerites
Date: Thursday July 20th
Cost: $10-$30 sliding scale materials fee (please review our sliding scale page for where to pay)
What you'll learn:
> How to make a glycerite (alcohol free) extract with fresh or dried plants
> What a glycerite is, and why you would choose to make one instead of a tincture
> How to calculate the appropriates ratios of glycerine to herbs
> Understand the process from harvest to final straining/pressing of glycerite
> Tips for avoiding mold/spoilage, as well as troubleshooting
Workshops will take place at MXED GREENS' storefront in Northampton's Maplewood Shops. The space and bathroom are wheelchair accessible. KF94 or KN95 masks, or N95 or equivalent respirator masks are required for all while inside, and we have free KN95s available for anyone. There will be a variety of standing and seating options. Registration is preferred, but not required ahead of time. We will cap the event to 10 participants for space considerations. Please inform of us of any food or scent allergies in advance!
