Creating an Herbal First Aid Kit
Come learn how to make your own herbal first aid kit to have on hand for treks out into the woods or right at home. Become familiar with the wayside medicinal plants that grow around us and how to use them for minor first aid situations. Together we will make a salve, wound powder, and disinfectant spray for your first aid kit. You will leave with the beginnings of a first aid kit, a list of items to stock your first aid kit, how to identify common plants used in first aid, the medicinal preparations made together in class and a new way to treat cuts, stings and bruises.
Cost of materials = $16/person (Materials cost is in addition to the regular ticket price)

There are a limited amount of Pay-What-You-Can tickets available for folks who self-identify as Black, Indigenous, and People of Colour (BIPOC). The Compost Education Centre is in the process of examining the ways in which our program accessibility can be improved for all members of our community. This ticket gesture is by no means a fulsome examination of the systems of oppression that exist for people inside and outside of our community. We welcome your ideas and feedback.
Please pre-register for this event.
Customers can request a refund within 30 days of ticket purchase. After 30 days refunds and workshop exchanges are not permitted due to administrative staffing capacity.

The Compost Education Centre is located on unceded and occupied Indigenous territories, specifically the land of the Lekwungen speaking people—the Esquimalt and Songhees Nations. These nations are two of many, made up of individuals who have lived within the porous boundaries of what is considered Coast Salish, Nuu-Chah-Nulth and Kwakwa'wakw Territory (Vancouver Island) since time immemorial. At the CEC we seek to respect, honour and continually grow our own understandings of Indigenous rights and history, and to fulfill our responsibilities as settlers, who live and work directly with the land and its complex, vital ecologies and our diverse, evolving communities.
