Herbs for the Southeast Michigan Gardener Class

Castle Remedies Manager Caitlin Potere has launched a new, free class about herb gardening in Michigan: Herbs for the Southeast Michigan Gardener online. It introduces 20 of her favorite culinary and medicinal herbs that are easy to use and easy to grow in gardening zone 6. The class covers growth, harvest, use, preservation techniques and basic DIY herbal medicine making. She says, “We will also learn to identify common edible and medicinal ‘weeds’ that are probably already growing in your yard or garden. Lastly, we’ll discuss a few plants that to avoid.”

     Potere also teaches an Introduction to Homeopathy class ($75) that helps beginners understand homeopathy and how to use more than 30 remedies for home care of common ailments like colds, coughs, sore throats, flu, fever, headaches, minor infections, skin conditions, stomach problems, minor injuries, menstrual cramps, infant colic, teething and more. The class consists of prerecorded videos and includes a 60-page e-Book.
