Greetings Plant Lovers,
With the brilliant colours of the autumn, the falling leaves, and the blooming meadows, we will once again connect with the land. We are so excited to announce that we are going to begin our “hand on” portion of our herbal course once again! We will proceed cautiously, on a month to month basis, ensuring we are following all the Corona Virus protocols (hand sanitizing, physical distancing, and mask). If for any reason you are not feeling “well” we ask that you do not attend this class.
Tuesday September 29th, 6 – 8 pm will be our next The Ginkgo Tree Herbal Class. We will be meeting here at The Ginkgo Tree, on our family farm. We have a great night planned! As always guests are welcome for a fee of $25.00 (depending on space and registering). Please note: herb course is the last Tuesday of every month (no class in December due to holidays, and subject to change due to covid).
We will open classes with a ceremonial blessing of our teachers and students. The ritual of smudging can be defined as “spiritual house cleaning.” Thanks to our friend from the Chippewa’s of Georgina, Laurie Hoeg, who will perform the ceremony. We will also have our “Tea of the Month” taught this month by Danielle Breen. Danielle will provide plant materia medica and a sample cup of the tea. Its so fun to try and experience new teas!
This month’s class (Sept 29nd)
Herb walk with herbalists Tamara Segal, RH and Penelope Beaudrow, RH
What a wonderful way to celebrate and connect with the plants and trees around us, then an evening herb walk. Herb walks are a-kin to something whimsical, I daresay, magical even! Join Tamara and Penelope to learn this art of wild medicinal plant identification, where to find them and how to use them. Oh! And what would an herb walk be without the folklore being shared?
Tamara is an truly gifted herbalist, she will share her vast knowledge of wild plant medicine and foods with us. She is a clinical herbalist, educator, and lover of everything wild!

What Should I Bring to Class?
In this class we will learn how to make a tincture with some of the wild plants growing here on the farm. Please bring a small mason jar and lid, scissors, ID book (if you have one), a small gathering basket, marker and label.
Let the fun begin!
Please RSVP, looking forward to seeing you all soon!
