Location: Curtis Gallery

Concoct a “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 warmer days ahead. New England colonists looked forward to foraging for wild greens that appeared under melting snow during the first days of spring. Fresh greens were not only healthy, but also a welcome treat after a winter of pickled, salted, and dried foods.

PLEASE REGISTER

This unique workshop is offered by Ehris Urban (herbalist, daughter) and Velya Jancz-Urban (historian, mother) who believe healing comes from nature, history, and within. The duo offer unique holistic/historic workshops, presentations, and events at a variety of venues, as well as at their colonial home. From its “dawn of America” history, dairy farm families, and documented paranormal activity, the 1770 Grounded Goodwife Farmhouse is filled with the stories of the women, men, and children who have called it home.
