Service Description

Come join this immersive herbal experience. Learn hands on with a guided forage on the beautiful grounds of the Amethyst Center in Bedford Co. VA. Prepare your own lunch with your forage, supplemented with prepared sides using foraged ingredients. Experience many different ways to "eat the weeds." During lunch you'll learn about the medicinal side of some of the weeds in your yard, learn how to process and use them to make your own medicine. Each participant will have a chance to sample multiple foods, teas and tinctures as well as make their own healing salve to take home! $66 per participant, limited spaces available. Says Amber Fleming, "I am a self taught herbalist, basic forager and owner of Earth's Essentials Apothecary. I always gravitated towards natural remedies but became much more serious about it in 2017. I wanted to have more control over my health & get off of the pharmaceutical roller coaster. I began studying herbs for specific issues, homeopathic remedies, I started receiving acupuncture and reflexology regularly and finally making my own remedies for myself and my family. I attended Azurae Windwalker's Plant Spirit Medicine workshop and was inspired. In 2020 my family and I purchased some property on the side of a mountain in Ferrum and a whole new world opened up. I began to grow and forage like I never thought possible. Using the most common yard weeds for food and medicine has become one of my passions. I hope to help everyone find respect for our earth, appreciation for the simplest of weeds, and a consciousness to know that it's all connected
