Herbal Arts Collective

The Herbal Arts Collective meets regularly to discuss and learn about the medicinal and therapeutic aspects of plants, many of which grow in our garden. Specialized workshops are regularly offered, which teach participants how to make herbal preparations such as salves, tinctures, teas and more. In 2014 we created the “Herb and Pollinator Garden”, a patch of protected garden space which houses many unique medicinal herbs as well as Pollinator friendly plants. It is from this patch and from the wild medicinal “weeds” which grow prolifically around Downtown Greens that we harvest our own herbs to make these herbal preparations. We recently made our own Herbal Bug-Spray! We also offer quarterly Wild Weed Walks, a guided tour and discussion of medicinal weeds in the garden and their healing properties.
