Herbs for the Cardiovascular System & Emotional Heart

Frontier Middle School, Rm. 131.   2751 Amsdell Rd, Hamburg, NY 14075

Studies confirm the beneficial effects of local hawthorn & motherwort on the cardiovascular system. Interestingly, these plants have traditionally been used for emotional healing, and support in times of change or grief.
Using science and traditional knowledge, Community Herbalist Sarah Sorci will discuss how these herbs affect the body, exploring the connection between the physical and emotional “heart." 

Participants will sample herbal concoctions and take home dried herbs, with instructions for making a tincture or tea at home. Each herb discussed can easily be grown in Western N.Y. Learn how to grow them, and take home motherwort seeds to plant in a pot, garden or ditch!
