Monday April 25th 6:00-7:30 Chickweed is our herb of the night at the MAPG Herb Garden! This common yard and pasture plant is a delicious foraged food as well as a medicine. Come learn more about how you can use this plant for common ailments. Ginny Borman, herbalist, will lead our discussion and foraging session. If you want to do the DIY, please bring a 1/2 pint jar (or whatever size you have) and your choice of oil (olive, sunflower etc.) or alcohol. If you want to make a tincture bring the alcohol, high proof vodka works well, or if you want to make salve/infused oil bring the oil.
If you have any chickweed in your chemical free yard, pick some and bring it with you! Ginny is bringing some goodies for us to try again – last week she brought a delicious dandelion pie and made some cooked dandelion greens for us to try. We all make tinctures to take home too. See the website for the recipes.
More info: http://madisonareapermacultureguild.org/herb-collective/ Our regular meetings are the 2nd and 4th Monday’s of the month. Check our website for updates on what herb we will be talking about that week. The herb garden is located 2 miles north of Madison.
Please forward on this notice to anyone who may be interested. I have someone who wants to car pool either from Fitchburg where she is at or from downtown or east side. Please send me a note to carpool. There is almost always carpooling to our meetings, so send me a note if you are interested. Last week there were people who came from Mt. Horeb, downtown Madison, east side of Madison and North Bristol.
