Medicine Making Parties
Upcoming Dates: April 19, 4pm – 6pm
Location: ION Studio, 41 Wooster Street, 1 floor rear, 10013 New York, NY
Driven by the seasons, each month we explore different herbs and mediums, including tinctures, vinegars, oils, honeys, and more based on what is lively and fresh in our partner gardens. Offered in tandem with NYC Chapter of the American Herbalist’s Guild, each class is part instruction/education and part hands-on learning as we dive in and make our own medicine for ourselves the community. Open to herbalists, herbal medicine enthusiasts, the herb curious, and complete beginners!
A $25 materials fee includes a take home jar of medicine. Classes are volunteer-led by local herbalists with all money directed to farmer payments, fresh herbs, medicine making supplies, harvest, and transportation costs.
Our monthly Medicine Making Parties also serve as Herbalists Without Borders collection sites. We encourage you to check out their list of most pressing herb and tincture needs here and bring in herbs to donate for disaster relief and recovery.
