Elderberry is a locally abundant herb that has traditionally been used for its immune boosting properties. Research has confirmed its antiviral nature, and its effectiveness in supporting the body during cold and flu season. In this workshop, Community Herbalist Sarah Sorci of Sweet Flag Herbs will discuss identification and harvest, properties, and use of elderberry syrup. Participants will prepare and take home their own bottle, made with local raw honey and rosehips. Elderberry syrup is safe for children over age 1.
Cost: $30 includes a 4 oz bottle of elderberry syrup and handout.
