Season of Wellness: Winter- Plants and their Remedies

JSU Field School

Join herbalist, Donna Smith, for JSU Field School’s autumn class in the Seasonal Wellness Series,

Built for both new herbal enthusiasts as well as the more advanced apothecarist. This series will help you learn more about our native plants, their many uses, and how to grow and process them in the context of your own at-home medicinal herb garden. Learn about herbs and their uses during the summer/early fall and what we need to be doing in our gardens and medicine cabinets based on the specific health needs of the season. Learn through lectures, plant walks, hands-on herbal preparations, wildcrafting, discussion, Q&A, and community building.
