Herbalists know that the taste and smell of a medicinal plant reveals a lot about its effects. When should we cook a spicy dish, or drink a moistening tea? Which herbs tend to support the immune system, or digestion?

In this two day retreat, holistic herbalist Sarah Sorci will guide participants through the differences between aromatic, bitter, mucilaginous, sweet, sour, and nutritive flavors. We will sample numerous herbal concoctions, and enjoy sensory plant walks, learning what these flavors tell us about the spices in our pantry and the weeds in our backyards. Participants will receive recipes and guidance for making their own healing concoctions, and will take home their choice of a dried herb for making teas or other concoctions at home.
