Classes & Events

Educational workshops are the bread and butter of Sweet Flag Herbs. In western New York, as in nearly every community, there is an abundance of medicinal and edible plants growing in every lawn, sidewalk crack, and wooded area. Sarah offers workshops about identifying, sustainably harvesting, and using these plants.

Sarah has experience offering plant-based workshops for individuals of all ages and ability levels, including differently-abled individuals. If you are interested in scheduling a workshop or would like more info, visit the Contact Page to get in touch.

4 weeks.  For as long as humans have existed, we have relied on plants for remedies and food. Sarah will introduce you to a range of common local plants and how they can be used medicinally. This class will cover the basics of herbal medicine and medicine making; explore the science behind the effects of various herbs; and introduce the plants “in person” as participants learn to identify them. No experience necessary.

Cost: $60. Includes supplies and samples.
