Second Sundays - Herbal Adventures with the Twisted Sisters

We've been talking about it for a long time, and now we're ready to do it... classes here on the farm, Frog Hollow Evergreens, in Manheim, PA.

Second Sundays with The Twisted Sisters

Each Herbal Adventure day will begin at 11:30 AM and will include:

~ A short weed walk where we will identify the plants of the season.
~ An herbal craft or two
~ A culinary creation
~ A medicinal preparation
~ A talk/discussion of a pertinent herbal subject
~ A light herbal supper
We will finish up around 6:30 PM and participants will leave with samples of everything we've made and a booklet put together specifically for that day with recipes and instructions to make it easier to continue at home.

Beginning with the August 9, 2009 Adventure:
Limit 8 fellow adventurers.
Cost $75
pre-registration and payment required. Click here to register and pay.

We'll start the day around 11:30 AM, with a short weed walk,
and then return to discuss what we found and talk about foraging while having a snack and tea (most likely the tea will be from the walk).

We will be making herbal vinegars,
distill some mint,
create some neck coolers, and then finally make up some passionflower tincture
before sitting and relaxing together over a light herbal supper. Tomatoes and basil are expected to star in that menu!

Around 6:30 PM, you will leave with a bottle of herb vinegar, some passion flower tincture, a neck cooler and a booklet with instructions and recipes for everything we did today.

After the winter holidays here at Frog Hollow Christmas Tree Farm we'll switch to Second Saturdays, but until then it is Second Sundays. Join us!
