Willow’s 2018 Florida Herbal Conference classes:
Growing Alliums in Florida
The Allium family brings together delicious culinary flavors, potent medicine, magical lore, and excellent companions in the garden. Garlic, onions, scallions, shallots, chives, and others in this genus give us edible bulbs, leaves, and beautiful flowers but have growing challenges with Florida’s southern latitude. Learn varieties and techniques for growing these healthy herbs, plus meet our native Florida Wild Onion.
Remembering Grandmother’s Tea
In this sharing circle, we’ll experience a guided meditation to connect with our earliest herbal memories. Was it the scent of grandmother’s tea, wildcrafting roots with an aunt and uncle, our mother’s spice cookies, or Dad’s chili seasonings? We’ll take time during this busy weekend to slow down and reach back to reveal the sweet tendrils of our earliest connections to the aromatic plant healers.
