Herbalist Mike Masek from the Forager’s Path is back just in time for winter and the holidays, to lead the annual Salve Making Workshop. This workshop shows you how to make unique and useful gifts for friends, family and yourself! The workshop will focus on two salve making processes. One method uses resin from the local Pinon tree; the other method is used for leaves and flowers in general. All participants will get hands-on experience and take home samples of both salve types.
When: December 8 9:30 – noon
