Learn which are the most important herbs to grow around your home and how and when to use them. The first half of the workshop is the presentation of information, the second half is interactive to help you remember the important points.
Tyson will introduce participants to 24 easy to grow herbs/weeds. He will relate two herbs to each of the 11 body systems (e.g. Respiratory, Nervous etc.), plus the special senses. Learn which climate they grow in best, how to recognise them (some with living samples), when to harvest and how to use them. In the second part of the workshop he will create a role play scenario with the participants focusing on 12 herbs and when is the correct time to use them (e.g. illness, accident etc.).
