You will leave this interactive workshop with remedies prepared by you using freshly harvested, in-season herbs and a booklet with all the information you need to make more remedies for yourself, family, friends, and community! You’ll go home with:

Vicky Salcido-Cobbe strives to live her life with purpose and joy. After years of depression, chronic illness, and self-destructive habits, her life changed in an instant when a clinician offered her a bottle of herbal extract as medicine in 2009. Since then, she has been amazed time & time again by the effectiveness and power of nature’s medicine. She is the hedge-witch behind Grandmother’s Medicine, a small-scale herbal apothecary that uses herbs grown or wild-harvested by her hands or by small farmers local to her in Northern California.
