Great-Granny McWilliam’s Spring Tonic

April 13, 2017 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Join herbalist daughter/historian mother duo, Ehris and Velya, to concoct a 16-oz “Great-Granny McWilliams’ Spring Tonic” featuring the wild edibles of spring, and sample a variety of tonic recipes.

Now that spring is almost here, it’s time to clear your body and mind of winter residues and blocks, and prepare for the active warm days ahead. New England colonists looked forward to foraging for wild greens that appeared under melting snow during the first days of spring. Fresh spring greens were not only healthy, but also a welcome treat after a long winter of pickled, salted, and dried foods.

Come explore and discover – your body will thank you. Participants will take home their own spring tonic. Visit the REGISTER
