Come explore the wilds of Rappahannock County, Virginia with Medicinal Herbalist, Teresa Boardwine. Explore the fields, mountains, stream beds and roadside in search for native plants as we forage and harvest our food and medicines. This three day camp is for adults to immerse themselves in nature and become empowered to support their health and the wellbeing of their families through the power of herbal medicine.
Over the course of three days, you will learn to identify and use the local medicinal plants of our beautiful mountain region. Teresa will demonstrate methods to prepare medicinal herbal teas, elixirs, tinctures, oils and salves from the healing plants that are so bountiful here. After your time spent at Green Comfort, you will want to incorporate medicinal plants into your home garden and create your own home apothecary with your newly acquired medicine making skills!
This experience is for anyone who wants to learn about the powerful healing properties of plants, how to craft herbal medicines, how to use food as medicine, and how to identify and use the plants around us to support well-being. No prior herbal knowledge, cooking skills or medical training is required.
