Weed Walk and Nettle Pesto Making with Spoonful Herbals

Saturday, June 16, 2018 - 10:00am to 12:00pm

Learn how to sustainably harvest nettles and then process them into a nutrient dense nettle pesto to take home.

Spoonful Herbals is the collaborative effort of community herbalists and educators Katherine Elmer and Kara Buchanan. Spoonful offers an annual Herbal CSA, which includes three seasonal herbal self-care packages. Each CSA provides 4-5 varied formulas with detailed educational guidance about the plant ingredients and their uses and educational events for members, all for $150, with convenient share pickup at Railyard Apothecary. Spoonful also runs a 6-month Community Herbalism Apprenticeship program where students learn how to identify, harvest, and create remedies from native and locally-grown medicinal herbs. Spoonful’s Herb Mob program engages volunteers to bring locally harvested (gleaned) medicinal plants into our apothecary from local organic farms and green spaces such as Shelburne Farms.
