Join us and master herbalist Kerri Kiernan of River Prairie Apothecary for an herb walk and step one of making herbal salves. During tonight’s meeting, Kerri will teach us how to identify medicinal herbs and prepare herbs for salve-making by infusing/soaking them in an oil. Since the infusion process takes up to six weeks, we will not be making salve on 8/21. The herb walk and talk on 8/21 is free and open to the public and will be take place at the Community Garden on Forest Street in Eau Claire. Childcare will not be available for this meeting; however, children are encouraged to attend with your supervision.
If you are interested in step two of the salve making process, read on: Since the infusing process takes up to six weeks, you are welcome to buy tickets for a related workshop on Making Herbal Salves, which will take place at a later date at the Unitarian Universalist Church in Eau Claire. This workshop is not an HMN sponsored event, and there is a fee. More details about the workshop can be found here: https://www.facebook.com/events/1985260845120634/
