Come join local herbalist, Heather Mashuga, for a hands-on elderberry syrup-making class. Elderberry syrup is a must-have, especially through the colder months! Elderberries are known for their immune-boosting and anti-viral properties. They reduce the duration of colds and flus, as well as the symptoms experienced. They are also packed full of other benefits like clearing mucous, reducing inflammation, and promoting proper circulation. Elderberries are a rich source of vitamins A and E, which help your body maintain optimal health.
You will learn how to make elderberry syrup, about the combined medicinal properties of the herbs used, and how to identify and harvest elderberries. We will also go over herbs and tips for winter health.
Each student will leave with handouts and their own bottle of elderberry syrup.
Students are asked to bring:
- Water and/or snacks, as there are no food facilities at the school
No experience needed
