Tickets Still Available! Herbalism Workshop at Calabar Imports

Local community leader, activist, and herbalist, Gerard Miller, will be presenting a workshop this Saturday 11/10 at Calabar Imports in Bed-Stuy.  Miller will both discuss the rich history of earth-based healing and plant medicine and explore the practices in practical, hands-on ways.  Participants will prepare 4 simple formulas with common herbs & essential oils and other easily-accessible ingredients, including a nourishing body scrub, a tincture, an infused oil, and an oxymel.

The workshop will also include a discussion of origins, properties, and uses of each plant; as well as variations to begin personalizing your medicine moving forward. Also discussed will be the history and modern social issues around herbalism, traditional wisdom-keeping, and cultural appropriation.

Tickets are still available here. Don’t miss out!
