We have already held several events on the subject of getting healthy and staying healthy without the use of pharmaceuticals. This kind of information used to be widely held but has gone underground from disuse. It’s time to resurrect it, and luckily we have many talented people in our community who have been relearning these old skills and are willing to teach them to the community without asking for a fee.
In the latest in the series, Claire Norris, who has a certificate in the Science & Art of Herbalism from Sage Mountain Herbal Center and has studied various alternative healing modalities for many years, is sharing her knowledge of herbal remedies that can be grown and prepared at home.
Claire lives in El Cerrito and is also Wellness Coordinator at the UC Berkeley School of Public Health.
On Sunday, February 17, come to the Edith Stone Room (Albany Library, 1247 Marin Avenue, Albany) for a presentation that will teach how to identify and use common medicinal plants growing in our area. It will include the medicinal uses of some kitchen herbs and garden herbs and you will learn a variety of methods to extract the healing properties from the plants to make your own herbal remedies.
Claire will also demonstrate how to make an all-purpose healing salve and participants will be able to take some home.
