Nature's Ph*rm*cy: Herbal Medicine Making Workshop (Online Session)
Join us as we learn to create a variety of botanical medicines using many Western U.S. native/naturalized plants. During this intensive online course we will learn the fundamental methods for making a number of preparations, including: teas (hot/cold infusions & decoctions), fresh/dry plant tinctures, herbal oils, salves, liniments, and syrups. Starting with an overview of some basic principles of plant chemistry we will examine different extraction methods while learning when they can be best applied. The remainder of the class will be devoted to learning specific preparation methods for a number of different herbal products. Standard to metric weight/volume conversions will be covered, and students will be given tried and true herb to solvent ratios which can easily be applied to the preparation of both small and large batches. The class session will be recorded and will include Q&A at predetermined intervals. Participants will have access to this recording for a two week period following the class, and because they will also receive a comprehensive materials list (with recommendations for trusted suppliers) they'll have ample opportunity to put theory into practice while recreating the preparations learned during the session.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:
-So I paid the class fee via PayPal...am I now officially registered and on the roster? Yes, your spot in class is now secure. PayPal will not accept online payments when a class is already sold out. Your payment confirmation/receipt has been sent to the email address associated with your account.
-Is this course suitable for kids? Nope. My adult-level online classes are in no way suitable for youth under 18. Trust me: they would be bored to tears.
-I see that hundreds/thousands of people have clicked on "interested and/or going" for this event...what are your class size limits? Don't take Facebook numbers too seriously folks...I cap these types of online classes at around 35 students :) That said, it IS true that my classes tend to fill to capacity months ahead of time...so procrastination is not recommended if you are hoping to secure a spot.
-When should I expect to receive more course details after registering? As is CLEARLY stated in the above description: "Specific class info will be emailed out to the registered/paid students within 2-3 days of payment. IMPORTANT NOTE: this message will be sent to the email associated with your PayPal transaction (and for some people this may not be their primary email)."
-I've never used Zoom before and am not very tech savvy...can I still register? Yes. All students will receive an email containing info to help prep them for how to effectively navigate the Zoom video platform ahead of the program start date. Zoom is very user friendly and doesn't take long to learn (especially with a little guidance).
-I'm a total beginner...will this class be too advanced for me? Nope. This class was designed for both beginner/intermediate students alike.
