Co-hosted with our friends at White Pine Community Farm in Wingdale, NY
Herb justice is a belief that all communities should have access to high quality locally grown herbal plants and remedies. Students in the Herb Justice Seed to Market program will learn first hand how to grow, tend and harvest dozens of medicinal herbs that are grown at White Pine Community Farm, in Wingdale NY. Participants will also work closely with the diversity of medicinal and edible plants that grow wild throughout our area. Throughout the program we will use these herbs to prepare herbal teas, salves and tinctures and bring these remedies to our rural and urban neighboring communities through various farmers markets. The Seed to Market participants will actively engage in the Herb Justice concept by learning to share herbal healing with the public regardless of race, class, gender, ethnicity, citizenship, ability, religion, or community.
