Friday night talk & potluck is free!
Sign up for the Weekend Workshop if you’d like.
Learn to make traditional honey extractions of various medicinal herbs and berries, then turn them into exquisite semi-sweet and dry meads using the low-heat, slow-aging process. We’ll work with Elderberries, Cherries, Cacao, Ginger, Spruce tips, Juniper berries, and other medicinal herbs and fruits. You’ll get to experience all of the stages of mead-making, including extracting the herbs with honey, selecting and pitching the yeast, and the stages of fermentation, racking, clearing, bottling, and aging. We’ll also sample the herbal meads we started last May! With Lisa Ganora, CSCH Director, and friends. Lisa has been making herbal meads for more than 25 years and combines her love of all things herbal with her skills as an herbal pharmacist and phytochemist
