Elderberry is a locally abundant herb that has traditionally been used for its immune boosting properties. Research has confirmed its antiviral nature, and its potential support in avoiding cold and flu. In this workshop, Community Herbalist Sarah Sorci of Sweet Flag Herbs will discuss identification and harvest, properties, and uses of elderberry syrup. Participants will learn about a few of Sarah's favorite ingredient additions, like rosehips and astragalus root. Sarah will demonstrate the preparation of elderberry syrup, and each participant will take home a 4 oz bottle made with local raw honey. Elderberry syrup is safe for adults and children over the age of 1 year.
