Laura & Lia, thanks for initiating an intro medicine making workshop! I'd like to help. Let me know the dates when you have decide.
I've made some blue elderberry & herb tinctures in the past, and I'm learning more this year through some new green earth medicine books & also collecting fungi to learn some adaptive & immune enhancing tinctures. Thanks again for intitating a class!
I appreciate the vision & spirit of your sharing!

All: Center for Local Self Reliance had a great work-party last Sat thanks to work of Laura S & Joanne & their planning team!
We met a great fellow named Chris ? Hudson who donated his hand built (& from recycled materials) cidar press and many of us took home at least one gallon of fresh pressed apples cidar! Shannon & many other southside folks welcome more helpers on future Saturdays to complete the fence.

I've been delayed on posting a group discussion I've drafted to share medicine making & growing wisdom we each have to share, but its in process.

Be sure to welcome Sajah and read his broader TW discussion “calling on herbalists, medicinal plant farmers, distillers, medicine makers, wildcrafters, and anyone who has any genuine interest in medicinal plants” at this location:

Also welcome to other new Earth Garden group members.
I look forward to working together on the earth and learning from each other!

I recently met a new resident family of our Koma Kulshan watershed, (Inspirational Laurel neighborhood), named Dov Shoneman, who is also experienced with plants and medicines.
See his TW page at:

I'm looking forward to seeing many of us come together to share in the earth's abundance this Sat at Inspiration Farm for autumn seed-swap & barter exchange!

Pencil date for your calendar for our annual winter seed-swap for Sunday Jan 30th in b'ham.
....If the date is adjusted we'll let you'all know.
