Plant, Food, Medicine
Here at Linnaea, it would be an understatement to say we worship plants. We plan and cultivate the optimal ground for their growth, we kneel down thousands of times a year to marry their roots with the soil, we offer them pure water and harvest them with gratitude. And the gift of my life here has been the truly incomparable feeling of the nourishment we get from seasonal vegetables and fruits, harvested in their prime and prepared with love.
Multiple teachers will guide us through the simplest steps to optimizing the nutrients of the food we eat, as well the most practical approaches to incorporating these steps into our daily lives. We will also introduce you to the fundamental principles of basic herbology to allow for a deeper connection to the healing strength of plants. Participants will come away with a full recipe book, instruction and course content handouts as well as selection of the delicacies and remedies we create together. This will be your own basic Plant- Aid kit.
