Did you know that our forebears grew and used many herbs and weeds to maintain their health? Did you also know that today a significant percent of US population uses herbs and botanical products to help treat and prevent disease and enhance quality of life? If you are interested in using herbs and herbal products but the purchasing price does not fit your budget, come and learn how easy it is to grow medicinal herbs in your garden and the basics of how to make herbal preparations. The workshop will also feature specific folk medicine herbs that the Pennsylvania Germans settled into the Kutztown area used to treat common health problems.
