Making Medicines from the Garden


Early Fall is the height of perennial and annual plant growth in our gardens. With so much biomass gardens are uniquely poised to make a plethora of herbal remedies for the present and future.

This class will teach gardeners how to make and use many different herbal preparations for common ailments, including teas, oils, compresses, soaks, steams, baths, tinctures, and liniments. Get ready to be coated in herbs during this fun and empowering class. The class takes place at the Cowell Ranch Hay Barn, adjacent to the UCSC Farm.

Workshop instructor Darren Huckle is a licensed acupuncturist trained in Western and Chinese herbal medicine. Darren is the founder and owner of Roots of Wellness in Santa Cruz.
