Have you been to Descanso Gardens? It was one of the first places I visited when I moved to LA, and I fell in love with the Oak Woodland and California Natives gardens, where you can learn about local landscapes and plants. So I’m excited to be partnering with People’s Pop-Up to teach two classes at Descanso this month:
On Saturday, October 17, I’ll be teaching Herbal Remedies for Cold and Flu Season. Learn how to make honeys, syrups, infusions, decoctions, tinctures, vinegars, and steams using everyday ingredients found in your kitchen or garden. Leave the workshop with a bottle of your own elderberry syrup and a jar of personalized fire cider.
On Saturday, October 31 (Halloween!), I’ll be teaching Make Your Own Bitters. Delve into the fascinating history and present-day use of bitters in cocktails, herbal remedies, and cooking. Learn about the essential ingredients, tools, and processes for making bitters, and craft your own bitters blend to take home.
Hope to see you there!
