Making Plant Medicine
with Nicholas Weinstein
Monday, April 6, 6:00PM, and the first Monday of each month
West County Herb Company, 3641 Main Street, Occidental

This workshop covers the basics of preserving plant based medicines, including tinctures, vinegars, and more, as well as other topics like when to harvest and the use of dried plant versus fresh. Also, historical preservation methods with be explored. We will discuss a few key plants that are easily accessible to help get you started with your own medicine making practice. You will go home with new skills to develop. Please join us for this fun evening!

After a decade of engaging with the plants on his own, Nicholas moved to Western Mass where he studied herbal medicine with Britany Wood Nickerson and Dori Midnight and started a Community Supported Medicine (CSM) program on an organic farm.

In 2013 Nic moved back to Oakland to open Homestead Apothecary, which offers an array of herbs, remedies, and goods made, collected or grown by mostly local folks who are passionate about their craft. He also has created his own line of beautiful herbal medicines, made with the best ingredients and intentions.

We look forward to seeing you and again, thank you for your continued enthusiasm and support.
