An important immune booster! A delicious digestive tonic! A help to your heart. A wonderful warmth. Fire Cider is all this and more. This old folk tonic has been used for everything from high blood pressure to lung infections to cold feet.
As always this class will start with an herb walk around the neighbourhood to meet some of the seasonal wonders growing around the Drive.
Then we'll move inside to taste, chop and create our own Fire Cider. We'll go into more depth about how, when and why to use this remarkable remedy.
Investment: $35 per person. Pre-registration with 50% deposit requested! For more information and to register, contact Eternal Abundance at 604-707-0088 or firstname.lastname@example.org, or visit www.UrbanHerbSchool.ca
About the series:
Walk around your neighbourhood - edible and medicinal plants abound! Fire Cider is the third of six workshops held one Thursday per month in the series "Eating What's Around Us", which looks to create awareness about what is available in our neighborhoods and at what time of year, so we can re-establish with the world around us, with our food, and our medicine. Each workshop will include an herb walk to identify and forage for wild and cultivated plants, followed by hands-on preparation of a food, salve, tincture, ferment, etc. Workshops are led by Garliq, a clinical herbalist and educator, and founder of the Urban Herb School (www.UrbanHerbSchool.ca) and the Living Medicine Project.
