Our Herbalism Track Begins: The Herbal Teas Workshop

Hannah Sparks, an herbalist with twenty-six years of experience, will be coming to ifarm on Saturday, April 8th to host the Herbal Teas Workshop. This herbal tea extravaganza will feature six different herbs that cover a variety of physical (and emotional) issues.

Hannah will introduce our selection of herbs for the evening, including their uses (Nettle to remedy exhaustion and stress, Lemon Balm to lift mood, etc) and taste profiles.

We will be using the herbs Nettle (Urtica dioica), Lemon Balm (Melissa officinalis), Calendula (Calendula officinalis), Holy Basil (Ocimum sanctum), Elderflower (Sambucus nigra), and Lemon Thyme (Thymus citriodorus). This selection covers ailments that include stress exhaustion, anxiety, low energy, digestive complaints, and poor circulation.

If natural health or herbalism has ever piqued your interest, this is an excellent event to get a glimpse of the practice of herbal medicine.

“Simplicity, effectiveness and minimal impact on the earth are essential principles of herbalism. I work with common herbs, which can be grown (or found) in any New England garden, so students can use the knowledge they gain immediately.”

-Hannah Sparks

Common Herbs for Effective Medicine

Following Hannah’s introduction, participants will experiment with the six different herbal teas. They will be free to experiment and blend, for the herbs we have chosen are very safe and mix well together. The workshop will teach herbalism in the way it has been taught for thousands of years, by offering the opportunity to taste, smell, and use each herb under the guidance of a teacher. In the creation process, participants will learn to use the herbs to address common health challenges and cultivate a strong immune system.

Hannah will be available throughout the evening for specific questions on the herbs and their uses. She has prepared a series of notes on the multiple uses of each herb for participants to take away.

We invite you to join our conversation of tea, herbalism, and new creations on April 8th.
