Herbs for Winter Health with Janet Kent

As the nights grow longer and colder, staying healthy in body and soul can be challenging. We become less active. Our immune systems are tested. We may feel low energy, even depressed. Fortunately, there are many simple herbal remedies that support immunity, keep us warm and energized and even ease the winter blues. Join us to learn herbal remedies for staying healthy during the winter moons.

$10-30 per person, sliding scale

Janet Kent is an herbalist, educator, gardener and writer. She grew up in the foothills of the Blue Ridge mountains, the child of two naturalists, learning the amazing diversity of regional wild flowers at an early age. She began studying the medicinal uses of plants when she moved to a rich Appalachian cove high in the mountains of Madison county, North Carolina fourteen years ago. She lives there in her hand-built mud/straw home where she maintains an ever growing herbal apothecary and medicinal & native plant nursery, Medicine County Herbs. She is co-founder of the Terra Sylva School of Botanical Medicine. In recent years, she has focused on herbal approaches to mental health and self-published a book, Ease Your Mind: Herbs for Mental Health in 2014. She believes in teaching others to grow, harvest and make their own medicine, thus making holistic health accessible to everyone.
