Looking for a natural and healthy way to kick the cold season? Come learn all about Elderberry. We will discuss the various ways this herb is prepared and used, as well as make our very own Elderberry Syrup.
Elderberry syrup is a delicious and effective way to support the immune system during a cold or flu. The elderberries, found on the Elder shrub, have been used for thousands of years as food, medicine, and tools. The flowers, berries, leaves, and bark can all be used but the berries are renowned for their ability to prevent upper respiratory infections. Adults and kids alike enjoy this sweet syrup.
You will leave the class with one mason jars of freshly made Elderberry Syrup, a better understanding of this plant, recipes, and the happy feeling of bringing something naturally amazing into your life and starting your very own apothecary.
Bring your hands and an open mind. All materials will be provided. Most of the herbs will be organic, depending on availability.
