Gifts from the Earth Workshop

Spread the herbal love this holiday season!!  Learn how easy it is to make a range of herbally inspired holiday gifts for everyone on your list. Herbalist Lydia Koltai will be sharing recipes and ideas for some of her favorite gifts to make and give.

Lydia is an herbalist, forager, permaculture gardener, nature awareness practitioner and student of the Earth whose journey with herbal medicine began over 15 years ago when she first learned “weeds” could be both food and medicine.  She has been using herbs for her own health and the heath of her family ever since.  More recently, Lydia has been teaching herbal medicine in her community for the past three years, providing herbal medicine through her business Elder Moon Apothecary, and selling medicinal herbs to encourage others to take charge of their own health, develop relationships with the plants, and make their own medicine.
