Title: Local Herbal Allies for Medicine Making


Description: There are many medicinal herbs that grow in northwestern Pennsylvania. Dozens are available to support health and wellness, and the solstice is a fine time to explore what is thriving as we move into summer. This workshop will include a short stroll as we identify local herbal allies, explore their growth habitats, and their appearances. We will also learn about the varied safe and effective ways in which we can work with these herbs in our homes to stock an herbal medicine chest.


Speaker Bio: Leslie Alexander is a professional herbalist, registered with the American Herbalists Guild (AHG). Based in Erie, she divides her time between her clinical one-on-one work with clients, mentoring herbal students, and community education. She has served nationally on the AHG Board of Directors and their Education Advisory Committee.
