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 #6: Syrups - the last class of the series!
Date: Friday, September 15th
Cost: $10-$30 sliding scale materials fee (please review our sliding scale page for where to pay)
What you'll learn:
> Learn how to make an herbal syrup, with fresh and dried plants
> Know how to calculate appropriate ratios of ingredients and preservatives, as well as dosing
> Possible herb combinations for fall and winter syrups
> Tips for avoiding mold/spoilage, as well as troubleshooting
> for this class, please feel free to bring of your own 4-8 oz with a lid if you have one! (we will provide jars if you don't!)
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.
